THE Cavatina Singers will present Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo, a concert, on Saturday, March 7 at 7.30pm.

The Penarth based choir will perform at Sully Old School in support of the NSPCC and Childline.

The first half of the programme will consist of a variety of songs by composers such as Aaron Copland, Vaughan Williams, Bob Chilcott and Sir Edward Elgar, whilst in the second half; the choir will perform the cantata "Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo".

Composed in 1970 by Joseph Horovitz, it is an adaptation of the Biblical tale of Noah and light-heartedly chronicles the adventures of Noah, charged by God to build an ark in order to preserve mankind and all the creatures of the Earth.

It has become an established favourite with adults and children alike and the immensely witty and skilful libretto by Michael Flanders makes it a sure fire winner.

Cavatina Singers will be joined for this performance by the talented young singer, Michael Lowe who will sing the baritone solo in this piece.

Michael, from Chepstow, performs both classical pieces and songs from Musical Theatre. As a choral scholar with the BBC National Chorus of Wales in 2013-14 he performed with them at the first night of the 2014 BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. He now studies with Eric Roberts at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

With refreshments available and a raffle in the interval, the concert promises to be a really enjoyable family event in support of a tremendously worthy cause.

Tickets for the concert cost £8 for adults and £4 for children. They are available on the door or from Griffin Books, 9A Windsor Road, Penarth.
