Thank you!

This season was our 40th, and so a very special one, and we sincerely thank all of you who came and supported the choir by being at one of our concerts. It was a great thing to be back singing again after eighteen months out of action due to the pandemic.

Now it is time for rest and to look forward to our next concert in November 12th. We will be singing Kodály’s Missa brevis and in the 150th year of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ birth, we sing his fantastic and challenging A Vision of Aeroplanes and some of his folk songs.

We will post more here about the concert nearer the time, including how you can buy tickets in advance. Please sign up for our newsletter to receive updates by email.

If you are a keen singer with experience singing choral music to a good standard and would like to join us, please get in touch via the form at the bottom of the page. We are particularly interested in applications from tenors and basses.

King Arthur

On 9th July we performed Purcell’s King Arthur. We were very pleased to be joined again by our friends, the Rosenau Sinfonia, harpsichordist Paul Jeanes and soprano Becky Ryland-Jones.

It was a wonderful evening and we thank all who came.

Allegri Singers Vocal Techniques

January 2019

We thought it would be fun to share some of the marvellous tips that Stephen gives us to improve our technique, and so this series of little videos was born. We hope you enjoy them, and if you are a singer, you find them useful.

We published them on Instagram, where we are AllegriSingers. Follow us!
