Giants in the Sky at Norwich Assembly House

On Friday 24th February 2012 I attended the latest concert in the UEA School of Music concerts in the Music at One Series at Norwich Assembly House. The concert featured Ellen-May Shipp - Soprano, Alison Lincoln - piano and Meredydd Cheeseman - Bass/Baritone.

The programme consisted of Vergebliches Standchen - Brahms, La Zingara - Donizetti, Du Bist wie eine Blume - Schumann, Standchen - Schumann, Lost Is My Quiet - Purcell, All I Ask Of You - Lloyd-Webber, Stars - Schonberg, Giants In The Sky - Sondheim, Something's Coming - Bernstein, It Was A Lover And His Lass - Finzi and The Vagabond - Williams.

This was a wonderful way to spend a Friday lunchtime at this historic Norwich building full of splendid singing that lifted the spirits of everyone in attendance. There are giants in the sky from the musical Into The Woods composed by Stephen Sondheim was one of the highlights.  Dreams full of fairy tales are made from music that inspires to brighten all our lives.
