We begin our 2018/19 season with an Allegri “first” – performing an overlapping double bill programme on consecutive days over a weekend.
Love & Remembrance – 17th November 7:30pm
St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden – Bedford St, London WC2E 9ED map
Part one of a collaboration between the Rosenau Sinfonia and The Allegri Singers will bring a wonderful programme of JS Bach’s ‘Brandenburg Concerto No. 3’, Vaughan Williams ‘The Lark Ascending’, Berlioz ‘Les nuits d’été’ and an exciting new work by Timothy Hamilton – his “Requiem”. The Requiem was commissioned to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War and we are delighted to be among the first amateur choirs performing it.
We will be joined by soloists: Zita Syme (soprano), Kate Warshaw (mezzo), Greg Tassell (tenor), James Oldfield (baritone) and violinist Mardiah Tucker, the leader of the Rosenau Sinfonia.
The concert is given in aid of the Stuart Low Trust, an Islington based charity whose mission is to ensure that local people, especially those experiencing social isolation or mental distress, have access to the support they need for better health and wellbeing.
Tickets: Available to book online here or buy on the door, though please note that space is quite limited, so booking in advance is highly recommended.
