Would you enjoy singing with us?

31st December 2012, by Mark Lawrence

We have just completed a heroically busy autumn term with Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. Now we start on a super programme of shorter works for our Tewkesbury Abbey concert in the spring.
We have an OPEN REHEARSAL on 15th January – do come and investigate if you think singing with us would be your thing!
The autumn included Brahms’ Requiem, Rautavaara’s On the Last Frontier, Messiah, Christmas Treats, Spectacular Classics, a carol service for Parkinsons UK, a CD recording… a real variety providing interest for all tastes.
Do get in touch with us.

Merry Christmas!

Wow! We’ve just finished our Christmas Treats concert, with a sparkling primary schools’ choir, the fabulous Heart of England Brass and organist Paul Carr. On top of that, Brahms and Rautavaara, a favourite Messiah concert, and participation in Spectacular Classics and the Parkinsons UK Candlelit Carols. Next, we will be taking part in Beethoven’s Ninth.
Then in January, we start on our Essentially English programme. You could come to the Open Rehearsal on Tuesday 15th January (see leaflet).
You can buy Christmas Treats – the album – online on CD, just £10 +p&p.

A real Treat for Christmas!

Come and enjoy our lovely Christmas Treats concert in Birmingham Town Hall on Sunday afternoon, 16th December for a sparkling musical feast, adult and children’s voices, brass and the grand organ.  Escape from the rush for pure enjoyment in the comfort and splendour of the Town Hall.

You could buy the album, too!  Christmas Treats is now available to buy online on CD, just £10 +p&p.

After a spectacular Messiah concert, and participation in Spectacular Classics and the Parkinsons UK Candlelit Carols, we are really looking forward to Christmas Treats.

Messiah! Hallelujah!
