The Bossard Quartet meet The West End Singers

Earlier this year, the West End Singers got in touch with us and invited us to share their concert, “Sing out for Summer” at Thornden Hall, in Eastleigh. The West End Singers are a fun loving choir who enjoy singing modern pop songs with a twist. We enjoyed meeting them and their enthusiastic conductor Alex Silverman.

We entertained an audience of 200 with a selection of repertoire as follows:

First Half
Lullaby of Birdland -George Shearing arranged by Jack Long
Come Fly with Me – Jimmy Van Heusen
Moon River – Mancini arranged by Jack Long
Sway – Pablo Beltran-Ruiz arranged Anna Pring
Ragtime Dance – Joplin arranged by Thorpe

Second Half
Brandenburg Concerto No.3 First Movement – J.S Bach arranged Latham
Bohemiam Rhapsody – Freddie Mercury
Plink Plank Plunk – Leroy Anderson
Palladio – Karl Jenkins
Feeling Good – A. Newley arranged Anna Pring
Star Wars – John Williams arranged Anna Pring

Feedback from the audience was great, the choir really enjoyed singing their pieces, and TBQ really enjoyed the concert too. As you can see our repertoire was eclectic which suited the audience perfectly (no disrespect to the audience intended!)

We were billed as “The Bossard Quartet, a string quartet from Portsmouth, but we won’t hold it against them!”

The concert was also broadcast live on Southampton Hospital Radio, so we hope our music was enjoyed further afield too

If you are organising a concert in Hampshire, get in touch with us to see how we can offer something a little different for your concert goers.

  1. Hi Angela,
    Yes I got the CD from Jan. It was lovely to hear the concert again! We are so excited to use the recordings on our website, and there will be another blog post about this soon!
    I will email you a selection of photos that our fanclub (lol) took on the night.
    When is your next concert with the West End Singers?
