WITHOUT some of its key junior and senior members, the Marionettes Chorale presented opera and Broadway works at a concert title Mosaic 5 on July 6, but no one in the audience could tell.

From the repertoires of Puccini, Verdi and Sir Elton John, the Marionettes team had Queen’s Hall in St Ann’s awash with splendid melodies and dance routines.

The absence of core Marionettes was highlighted by chorale director Gretta Taylor in the programme’s foreword.

However, she took comfort in the fact that many in the youth chorale have shown a genuine penchant for classical music and opera in particular.

Cherisse Navarro, Tahirah Osbourne,

Meagan Pollonais, Feryal Qudourah and Rory Wallace all participated in June Nathaniel’s Key Academy and the Classical Music

Development Foundation’s production of

Sfumature d’Amore a few months ago.

The exposure gained by these choir members resonated at Mosaic 5, together with veterans Jacqueline Smith, Marlon de Bique and Errol James.

Music lovers expected the Marionettes Chorale to better its presentations of opera and Broadway works combined every time and that’s what the choirs did on the weekend as communicated in their rapturous applause from patrons.
