Before our screening of Night and Day on Saturday 21 October at St Mary Redcliffe Church, you will be serenaded by show songs from the era by Keep It Vocal choirs, lead by Anya Szreter, a highly experienced and enthusiastic choral director now based in Bristol:
“I’m delighted to be collaborating with Charlotte Crofts for Cary Comes Home Festival’s screening of Night and Day. I run three choirs in Bristol: Nightingale Valley Choir, The Redcliffe Singers and Arnos Vocale. It has been a fun and rewarding challenge involving all three of them. I’m so proud of how they’ve risen to the occasion and hope there will be opportunities to work together again. After the thrill of being involved in the first Singing City choirs day in 2022, at St George’s, Brandon Hill, we have relished the excitement of performing in these iconic Bristol locations and feeling we are part of the wider musical life of the city. I’m looking forward to posting some clips of the event on my website, www.keepitvocal.com” (Anya Szreter)
A huge thank you to Anya and all her choristers for singing Cole Porter classics and other show tunes before the screening! If you are interested in joining one of Anya’s choirs, please see more information below:
As soon as Anya Szreter moved to Bristol in 2018, she started up a local choir for the Brislington community.
Her second choir, Arnos Vocale, started a year later with just 6 advanced singers and has since doubled.
Word got around and in 2019, Anya was asked to start a choir for volunteers on the SS Great Britain, re-named, The Redcliffe Singers after jumping ship in 2022!
