Saturday 18th November 2017
We began our 2017/18 season with a performance in our home venue (St Marks, Bromley) of Monteverdi’s Vespers. This seminal work from 1610 was performed with original instruments, fittingly in the 450th year of Monteverdi’s birth.
The Allegri Singers were joined by tenors Greg Tassell and Gareth Edmunds, sopranos Eloise Irving and Chloe Morgan, and The Queen’s Players early music ensemble with Adrian Woodward.
Saturday 9th December 2017
Christmas by Candlelight
We were joined by the marvellous Highfield Junior Voices for a candle-lit concert in Bromley Parish Church.
There were carol arrangements sung by the choir, interspersed with items sung by the children. Also some favourite carols for the audience too and mince pies and mulled wine to warm the spirits on a chilly night!
Saturday 24th March 2018
“Beyond the Stage”
The concert concluded with Richard Wagner’s highly expressive arrangement of Stabat Mater by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, with soloists from the choir.
Sunday 1st July 2018
