  • Cancellation of Bach Concert
  •  Date Posted: Wed, 18 Mar 2020
    It was with the heaviest of hearts that, like so many choirs, we had to cancel our concert for 21st March. Everyone had worked so hard for such a long time, and we were all looking forward to the performance. Our concert is just one of many events that didn't happen, and a small thing in the great scheme of things. We  send out our very best wishes to everyone, but especially to our audience, to those who perform with us and all those freelance musicians with no work. We must all keep singing somehow, and hope that things will get to back to normal before too long. Keep healthy!

  • Bach and the Baroque Workshop
  •  Date Posted: Mon, 24 Feb 2020
    In February the choir held a very successful morning workshop on the B Minor Mass. This was led by our MD, Harry Bradford, and accompanied by Colin Spinks. We were joined by members of other choirs as we worked on some of the vocal and musical techniques needed to perform the Mass as Bach intended.
    Comments on the workshop included ‘I felt uplifted and excited by the challenge of using Harry's ideas and techniques’, ‘a wonderful workshop’ and ‘there was a real buzz at the end of the workshop - I thought the whole atmosphere was positive and fun’.

    We are looking forward to applying these techniques to our performance of this wonderful work in March and hope that our audience will benefit!
