On Saturday 10th October JCGlee performed “The Selfish Giant” as part of a joint choir with the Singcredibles and Victoria College Prep. The Jersey Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Daniel Cohen performed the piece with us at the Jersey Opera House and Baroness Floella Benjamin narrated the story.
It was a great experience for all involved as for the majority of us it was the first time we had performed with a professional orchestra and conductor. It was also a fantastic opportunity to work alongside a current West End musical director, Dominic Ferris, who has musically directed all kinds of productions and is one half of the piano duo The Piano Brothers.
The final production turned out to be a superb experience which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We are very grateful to be part of ‘The Selfish Giant’ and we hope to have more opportunities like this in the future.
