Another chance to hear West End stars Jodie Prenger and Graham Bickley in a Friday Night Is Music Night concert recorded in July 2010 to mark the 60th Anniversary of the Kings Lynn Festival. Ken Bruce hosts a night celebrating the Magic Of The Movies as Jodie and Graham remind us of the delights of films such as New York New York, Meet Me In St Louis, Dirty Dancing and Toy Story. And what movie music show would be complete without a nod to James Bond 007? Richard Balcombe conducts the BBC Concert Orchestra with pianist Andy Vinter.
The concert was first broadcast 10th September 2010.
Interval: Jodie Prenger, Graham Bickley and conductor Richard Balcombe take a break during rehearsals to chat to Neil Rosser about their careers both on and off the West End stage. Jodie Prenger discusses growing up in Blackpool and performing show tunes to difficult audiences; Richard Balcombe recounts his musical education and trades anecdotes about the Norwegian city of Stavanger, while Graham Bickley revisits old ground in Studio 4 of Television Centre, where he played the part of Joey Boswell in Bread and remembers the hits and misses of his career in musical theatre.
