Jervaulx Singers Opera Delight!

The Jervaulx singers were founded by Charlie Gower-Smith and Jenny Blanco – both having worked in the Arts for many years. Charlie also runs the Chapter House Youth Choir in North Yorkshire, the Thirsk Sinfonia Orchestra, Voices at the Rivers Edge Youth Choir at the Sage Gateshead, and the Hallé Youth Choir. Based in the Ripon area and performing across the UK, the group is made up of freelance established opera singers who work for various opera companies throughout Europe. Most of them are now living in the North having tired of expensive living in London, but most qualified at either the RCM or the RAM or the RNCM. Peak Music supports Charlie in his determination to bring music to younger audiences and encourage young people to sing and take part in music. It’s great that he is doing so much in the North of England.

Charlie and Jenny brought us a super different programme with Charlie conducting. The quality of singing was excellent and they delivered Mozart – Magic Flute, Offenbach, Strauss, Bizet and Verdi with professional brilliance. However their South Pacific – Some Enchanted Evening – was beautifully delivered showing how adaptable and diverse their singers are, and their finale – You’ll Never Walk Alone from Carousel – was the perfect ending for this Liverpool supporter!

There was lots of informative chat, and each member of the ensemble were very interesting and very talented. The audience clearly loved the programme and the group received a great ovation from our audience.
