We spent last weekend in Nottingham visiting our younger son who is studying at Nottingham Trent University, and we were privileged to attend a fabulous concert on Saturday night that he was singing in as part of the NTU choir.
A Night in the West End took place at the Nottingham Royal Concert Hall in support of the John Van Geest Cancer Research Centre, with the NTU Choir, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and West End musical theatre star Kerry Ellis, under the direction of the NTU Director of Music Matthew Hopkins.
We were treated to a selection of music from the musicals, from Gypsy and Carousel to the more recent Wicked and Blood Brothers.
It was a wonderful evenings entertainment, top quality music from everyone involved, and for a fantastic cause, prostate and breast cancer research, every penny raised going to the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre which is based on the NTU Clifton Campus.
I was immensely proud of my son and his choir, and as a big fan of Kerry Ellis (and yes he was more than a little star struck!) I am pleased he got to meet her in person!
