Members of ACEchorus Support Barry Manilow

ACEchous in red robes ready for concertIt took ACEchorus all of two seconds to accept an invitation to appear in Barry Manilow's farewell concert at the Glasgow Hydro on Tuesday 14 June 2016. How could we refuse?

 

Three songs and three rehearsals later we gathered at the main entrance to the venue to be met by Frank Duggan, their Liaison and Hospitality Exec.

 

ACE performing at Kelvingrove Art GalleryA rehearsal studio was set aside for us and we quickly made ourselves at home. To calm our mounting excitement we launched into our warm-up with the three finale numbers. No time to get nervous as we were then escorted to the main arena for positioning and a work-out for each song, with Kye.

 

Back to the studio to practise what we should be doing over and over again till we finally got it right. Frank came to give us all our vivid red performing robes and a few minutes later we were back stage, and the biggest thrill of our lives was about to begin.

 

ACE performing at Kelvingrove Art GalleryThe Finale music filled the Auditorium and we were ON! What a noise! What an atmosphere! What a thrill!

 

WE DID IT!

 

"It's a Miracle, such a Spectacle, Oo Oo, baby it's you. Whoo!"

 

ACEchorus had lived the dream.

The Best of ACE, 2004

2004 concertACE returned to The Clyde Auditorium (The Armadillo) to stage this year's concert which was a selection of favourite numbers from the previous four years. It was an excellent programme, providing a good balance between chorus and solo numbers, and new and not so new musicals. It would be wrong to single out individual numbers for special praise when every number was performed so well. The chorus looked and sounded stunning!

 

Great credit also to the members of the Artistic Concert Experiences orchestra who were integral to the success of the concert. MC for the evening was Neil Mudie, who provided excellent continuity. As well as giving tremendous enjoyment to chorus and audience alike, ACE raises a considerable amount of money for charity.

 

We were delighted to be able to donate £3,000 between the two charties, Diabetes UK and Sense Scotland.
