Matthew Andrews conductor
Alison Roddy soprano

Dukas The Sorcerer’s Apprentice  
Canteloube Songs of the Auvergne              
Ravel Pavane Pour une Infante Défunte
Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances   

This concert has a very French feel with Dukas’ Sorcerer’s Apprentice (unforgettably animated in Disney’s Fantasia), the gossamer-like Pavane Pour Une Enfante Defunte by Ravel and Alison Roddy the vocalist in the delightful and popular Songs of the Auvergne by Canteloube. The concert ends with Rachmaninov’s spectacular Symphonic Dances, showing off the orchestra to dazzling effect.

The Jay Singers

Neil MacKenzie director

Christmas is a-coming and this concert given by one of Norfolk’s most popular choirs is guaranteed to get you in a festive mood!

Their repertoire is diverse, spanning the centuries, and is always delivered with the same care, commitment and infectious enjoyment. The ‘Jays’ have been delighting audiences for nearly two decades and next year the choir celebrates its 20th anniversary.
