Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s Southampton-based community choir, BSO Voices, have been practising and recording remotely since March 2020. Led by conductor Pete Harrison, the choir have released a selection of videos over the last year.
Put On Your Sunday Clothes is best known from the soundtrack of Hello, Dolly!, the 1969 American romantic comedy musical film, based on the 1964 Broadway production of the same name. More recently it was the opening song for the Pixar film Wall-E (2008). Upbeat and joyous, this song is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and lift the spirits!
The recording was specially arranged by Teresa Barlow and conducted by Pete Harrison, carefully edited by Alex Rimell, Richard Berry, Alison Sawyer and Catherine Hoolihan. It is accompanied by Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
Conductor Pete Harrison will also be conducting our Hollywood Classics concert on 13 March. An opportunity to revel in all those classic film scores, Pete says ‘What I love about film music is that you can paint the scene of what is going on in the film and people are transported to that scene through the music…Often you can start playing and people are in tears straight away; the music brings up such emotion!’
