Summer concert – Friday 5 July
My spirit sang all day is the name of a song by Gerald Finzi. It has also given its name to our summer concert as it so perfectly sums up the mood of the music. We’ll be singing Five mystical songs by Vaughan Williams and folk-inspired songs by Holst and Ireland as well as Finzi.
The programme also includes the world premiere of Cantico, a hymn of praise composed by local viola player Jill Elliott. The work is based on the poetry of St Francis of Assisi and is utterly mesmeric.
We’ll be accompanied by baritone soloist Dexter Drown, soprano Megan Hooper and our very own Maureen Cooper on piano.
A lovely programme for everyone who relishes the joy of song.
When: Friday 5 July at 7.30pm
Tickets on the door £12/£10 (children free)
Spring concert – Friday 29 March 2019
To judge from the comments, our performance was much enjoyed by all.
Elijah is Mendelssohn’s intensely dramatic telling of the biblical tale of the prophet. First performed in Birmingham in 1846 it’s a firm favourite in the choral repertoire.
And no wonder. It has good tunes and beautiful harmonies, and the story it tells is nothing short of amazing.
We were joined by a full orchestra and soloists Georgie Malcolm (soprano), Serenna Wagner (alto), Peter Willis (tenor) and Will Orr (bass) in the title role. They all did us proud!
