Full house at Tewkesbury completes the season

Rehearsing in the Abbey

Rehearsing in the Abbey

Thank you to everyone who came to our Essentially English concert at Tewkesbury Abbey on Saturday 18th May. The nave was packed with concertgoers enjoying our concert on a dry if slightly chill May evening. There was a splendid selection of music by English composers, Byrd, Elgar, Ireland, Howells, Finzi and Leighton both with organ and unaccompanied, all directed by our Conductor, Adrian Lucas.

That completes our season, but you can hear our choir ladies in Holst’s The Planets with Vladimir Ashkenazy at Symphony Hall on 15th June.

We will be back in the autumn with a Karl Jenkins concert (2nd November), conducted by the composer, and Mozart Requiem (16th November), conducted by our own Adrian Lucas.

Birmingham’s well-loved traditional Handel’s Messiah takes place on Friday 6th and Tuesday 10th December.
