It has been months since GRB Concerts has been able to perform any of its concerts, and the only bit of good news is that the cancelled concerts have all been pencilled for new dates in 2021. We cannot wait. This year has seen unprecedented levels of misery in all its forms, but not felt as keenly as it has in our sector. As I write, there are the smallest of green roots beginning to flourish in theatres, concert halls and make-do stages throughout the land, and all success to each and every event. But it is clear, we are still a long way from any form of normality.
After conversations with friends and colleagues, four of us decided to remind ourselves of the fun and joy of simply singing together, albeit with the use of technology. This extract is from our What The World Needs Now…The Music of Burt Bacharach concert, and called South American Getaway, from his award winning movie score for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
With Katie Birtill, Abbie Osmon, Mary Carewe & Graham Bickley.
Special thanks to Mary who produced effortlessly despite moving house mid project! Richard Balcombe and Ian Maclay (RPO).
We will all be back doing what we love very soon.
