Emmanuel Church in Mannamead was full to capacity for the Gala Concert given jointly by the Music Department of Plymouth College and the renowned St Dennis Brass Band, one of the premier brass bands in the South West.
The principal soloist was Annabel Kennedy OPM, who was able to make time in her busy schedule of studies at the Royal College of Music in London to return to Plymouth. The wonderful venue provided a most magnificent backdrop for the massed choirs and highly-talented soloists from the College.
As part of the evening, the Church’s magnificent organ featured in pieces with the Band, as well as having a solo role in the Organ Symphony by Saint-Saens.
The Gala Concert launched the 2016 concert season, which runs until the 27th April.
