Hayley Westenra in concert

On Saturday evening, I was over in Bangor Elim, also know as the Bangor Conference and Corporate Centre to see Hayley Westenra in concert. The New Zealand classical star was the guest of the Bangor Ladies Choir, but Hayley was definitely the star of the show.

She appeared twice to do solo sets, mostly songs from her 'best of' album, as well as some others which weren't as familiar. She then appeared with the choir in the finale. All in all, Hayley made it a great night, and hopefully she won't leave it too long until she returns to Northern Ireland again.

Her voice was so pure, it was as if it was CD quality - no need for editing in the post-production of her CDs! She also interacted well with the audience, telling the stories of the songs and a bit about herself and her musicians as well. At her site you can see and hear lots of sample audio and videos, so go hear Hayley Westenra for yourself!
