The acoustics in St. Chads with its unusual round shape are excellent. The Shropshire nonette consisted of a flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, horn, violin, viola, cello and double bass. The playing was good and the performance was well received. Very little music has been scored for a nonette so this was quite unusual. The oboe was a little harsh at times and the viola was occasionally lost but in the main it was an excellent performance.
Sister Act was a musical put on by the Shrewsbury Amateur Operatic Society at the Theatre Severn. The performance was sold out but we managed to get two seats in the last row of the second balcony. It was a lot of fun and was well appreciated by the audience. It tells the story of a singer in Philadelphia who witnesses a murder and it placed in witness protection in a nunnery which is on the verge of being sold. The nunnery choir is very poor but the singer teaches them to sing well and they become well known throughout the city. It comes out alright in the end.
