Concert Programme

 

Forthcoming Season 2019/2020:

2019 Autumn Term

Come and Sing / Workshop  –  Saturday October 26th

Programme:

           Zadok the Priest and Let Thy Hand be Strengthened – Handel

           I Was Glad – Parry and Evening Hymn – Balfour Gardiner

This will be a chance for the Choir, friends and other choirs’ members and potential new members to have a day with fun but a serious tone as well learning, refreshing and improving some pieces of music that will be performed, for a small charge, to an audience later in the day.

2019 Christmas Concert

Sunday afternoon on 15th December

Programme:

Part 1      Britten – Ceremony of Carols accompanied with harp and 2 soloists

                 Handel – Zadok the Priest and Let Thy Hand be Strengthened

Part 2     Carols with audience participation

This is a longer Christmas concert but very family friendly and the Britten music is lovely. The use of a harp will be a first as far as I know for Stanmore Choral Society, at least in recent past. I am sure the younger members in the audience will be especially excited to see and hear a harp

                                               *************************

In addition
Voices for Hospices: Harrow Speech Room
Saturday 19 October 2019 – approx. 10-30 am – 5pm
This is a chance to sing along with many other choirs in the grand speech room of Harrow School. There is then a slot of seven minutes for each choir to sing some of our favourite piece(s) of music. It is a chance to show our worth. As well as a lot of fun the last Come and Sing raised over £7,000 for the Hospice movement.

                                               *************************

2020 Spring Term

Saturday 4th April at 7.30pm

Programme:
Durante – Magnificat
Haydn – Insane et Vanae Curae
Mozart – Ave Verum Corpus
Mozart – Coronation Mass

There will be four soloists and organ for this concert. It is very upbeat music and lovely to sing as well as to listen to. The choir will have at least 14 rehearsals so should not feel rushed and will have plenty of time to have this piece of music ready.

                                             *************************

2020 Summer Term

Saturday 27th June 2020 at 7.30pm

Chilcott – Little Jazz Mass
Shearing – Songs and Sonnets
Rutter – Birthday Madrigals

This is a slightly more relaxed summer programme that’s a bit more jazzy and fun. The whole programme can be accompanied by piano but it will be fun to get in a double bass and possibly even a bit of percussion for the Chilcott.
