Classics performed with gusto
THE Centre of Performing Arts at UWE, under its Director Ian Holmes, is renowned for producing varied forms of entertainment from full-blown concerts and musicals to small-scale occasions such as Friday's performance.
The programme consisted of singing solos and duets introduced by the students plus items from saxophone and woodwind groups.
The first set of songs were all from musicals including an excellent version of New Girl in Town from the Hairspray.
After selections from the woodwind ensemble, Rosie Wake dramatically sang Don't Tell Mama from Cabaret in a very mature performance. After an excerpt from their forthcoming production of Honk (March 20 to 23 at the Redgrave ) it was the turn of the saxophone group. Their version of Pachabel's Canon was particularly impressive while Snippets for Saxes by Gavin Smith gave each instrument a chance to shine. After the interval, the woodwind, augmented by the rarely used bass flute, performed Bach's Air on the G String but needed to be a little quicker to get the full effect.

Zoe Cotton and Anna Prior, each of whom had sung a solo in the first half, performed the amusing Cats Duet with charm and enthusiasm and there followed a trio from Shrek. After a few more items from the saxophones including a swinging version of Puttin' on the Ritz, a trio from The Witches of Eastwick rounded off a successful evening.
