Bray People - - NEWS -

GREY­STONES Orches­tra per­formed an evening of Gil­bert and Sul­li­van re­cently at SoBe South Beach Pavil­ion.

The per­form­ers en­joyed their con­cert in this year’s new venue and pre­sented a de­light­ful evening of mu­sic.

The evening of op­eretta fea­tured a host of favourites from mu­si­cal artists Gil­bert and Sul­li­van. The pro­gramme in­cluded mu­sic and song from The Mikado, Pi­rates of Pen­zance and HMS Pi­nafore. So­prano Katy Kelly will once again joined the orches­tra, singing pop­u­lar num­bers such as ‘Poor Wand’ring One’ from Pi­rates of Pen­zance and ‘Sorry Her Lot’ from HMS Pi­nafore.

Katy was joined by tenor Wayne Wood­man who per­formed a num­ber of songs in­clud­ing ‘I’ve Got a Lit­tle List’ from the Mikado.

Grey­stones Orches­tra was es­tab­lished in 1989 by a small group of mu­si­cians whose aim was to ‘stim­u­late in­ter­est in mu­sic and en­cour­age mu­si­cians of all stan­dards’. Within a decade that be­came into a multi-cul­tural orches­tra with play­ers from Amer­ica, Aus­tralia, Eng­land, France, Ger­many, Ja­pan, New Zealand, Scot­land, Sin­ga­pore and Switzer­land, all with the com­mon lan­guage of mu­sic. The play­ers are of mixed abil­ity, all happy to meet on a Mon­day night and play mu­sic to­gether.

They re­hearse on Mon­day evenings in St Pa­trick’s pri­mary school in Grey­stones.

Singers Wayne Wood­man and Katy Kelly.
