There will be a treat for G&S lovers on Saturday 17 June when the well-known singing group The Wandering Minstrels will present THE WORLD OF GILBERT AND SULLIVAN in the Ballroom at Stamford Arts Centre at 7.30pm.
This special Gala evening will mark the company’s Silver Jubilee.
Artistes appearing in the concert include Emma Stratton, Alexandra Ferrari, Stephen Godward, Tim Hurst-Brown and Charles Mills, accompanied by Peter Hewitt at the piano. They will sing, act and dance their way through excerpts from many of The Savoy Operas including The Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado, The Gondoliers, The Yeomen of the Guard, Patience, Ruddigore and HMS Pinafore.
The Wandering Minstrels have been delighting audiences throughout East Anglia and the East Midlands for twenty-five years, and have helped to raise over £250,000 for local, national and international charities as a result of their popular Gilbert and Sullivan concerts. Their light-hearted evenings of excerpts from The Savoy Operas, beautifully sung and delightfully staged, are events to remember. This talented company has built up an enviable reputation as “one of the UK’s foremost Gilbert & Sullivan performing groups” and is much in demand.
