THOSE of us who were lucky enough to be in the audience at St James’s, West Malvern, on the 17th of this month were treated to the sparkle and snap of crackingly good singing.

Colla Voce, a group based in the county.

They beguiled us again by their bravura performance of show-stopping hits from West End and Broadway shows.

It was good to be reminded of musical excellence. We look forward to a return visit.

This is a reminder to you, if you want to dispel the winter gloom. Put November 2013 in your diary.
