What a concert and it was completely free. Consisted of 240 Wandsworth school kids onstage accompanied by a hyperactive music teacher/conductor performing about 75% of the songs from the featured album.

45 minutes of hairs standing up on your arms emotional music, highlight for me was the rendition of "Desperado", using 4 soloists, only one of them hit a bum note, the first and final singers had amazing voices. "God only knows" was also something special, but it was all pretty faultless. All the pupils enthusiasm for the songs was really touching, even the kids out of sight at the back of the stage were rocking to the sounds.

The audience was pretty cool too, I got there about 5 and was pretty surprised how empty it was, it filled up quite quickly with a lot of parents, relatives and friends, which I guess made up over half the audience. Only towards the start of the show did the place really fill up.

I remember someone on the last thread about saying it couldn't work with a bunch of Bermondsey school-kids singing the songs, that it was the Canadianess that made the album. I thought this would be the case too, but the South London accents were very much in evidence during the songs, especially when the songs reached their crescendos, but it didn't spoil it one bit, just added to the whole experience.

What a great concert.
