Mollie's key to future
12:40pm Friday 6th September 2013 in News
A YOUNG soprano tipped for a great classical musical future is making the step up to an adult choir this weekend.
Mollie Smith, aged 15, of Ilmington, moves from the ranks of the Junior Saint James’s Singers to become a member of the adult choir during a concert titled Baroque Jewels at Saint Mary's Church, Ilmington, on Sunday. The Chipping Campden School student will be joined by Joe Chamberlain, who is a member of the National Youth Choir, for the performance from 7pm.
Mollie said: “It’s great fun – the seniors are so helpful, particularly when we are tackling such difficult works as the Dixit. It’s really tough for the sopranos.”
The programme will consist of Handel’s Dixit Dominus, Purcell’s Rejoice in the Lord Always and Haydn’s Saint Nicholas Mass.
Conductor Julian Harris said: “We have several of the best of our juniors now joining the full choir they make a big and beautiful sound. They will really make the rafters ring.”
Mollie will also be singing the solo part of Dido in the Purcell opera Dido and Aeneas as part of the Ilmington Music Festival on Saturday, September 14.
