4th April 2020

The choir is excited to be joining with South Chiltern Choral Society for a performance of Rossini’s Petite Messe Solonnelle in the Great Hall of Reading University.

The massed choir of around 130 voices will be accompanied by Ian Westley on piano and Martin Jones on harmonium. The concert will be conducted by Paul Burke and there will be four professional and very accomplished soloists, including Matthew Thomas Morgan.

Famous for its inclusion of a harmonium, Rossini described the work as the last of my péchés de vieillesse or sins of old age! He questioned whether he had written sacred music or sacrilegious. Whatever, it is a joy to listen to.

In June 2020 we go to France for a concert in the French Alps – a mix of traditional French songs, opera choruses and a return to Rogers and Hammerstein. We hope to bring some of the music back to sing locally before the summer is out so watch this space for more news on that!

Our thriving choir is always keen to welcome new members. We are a friendly bunch, who love to sing, socialise and generally have a good time. We also enjoy visiting our friends in the French Alps, La Stephanelle, and making Music together. 

So if you think this sounds like the place for you do get in touch.
