Concerts

Pictures of our concerts and lists of what we sang are on the Gallery pages.

 

Our Summer Concert was on 20 May 2017 at Kings’ Bruton and presented a programme of music for choir and brass. We were pleased to be joining with The Godfrey Kneller Brass Ensemble (directed by David Bertie) for this event, which featured a lively mix of Renaissance and Contemporary music. We were also  joined by soprano soloist: Maria Marton, in the Jubilate by  Bob Chilcott.  Other music featured included Monteverdi’s Beatus Vir and works by Gabrieli, Pitoni and Viadana.

 

Each December we sing our Carols by Candlelight concert, either at Bruton School for Girls or in St Mary's church  

 

in 2016 our concert was in May at King's School, where the music included Mozart's Regina Coeli K127, George Dyson: Three Songs of Praise and songs from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. The concert also featured cello soloist Arturo Serna.

 

In May 2015 at King's School, we sang the Haydn Missa Brevis in F, and George Shearing's songs and sonnets.

 

Before that was Rutter's Magnificat on Sunday 16 November 2014 when we joined the King's choir at King's School.

 

In May 2014 we were in the Memorial Hall at King's School, when we sang Vivaldi's Gloria and Bob Chilcott's Little Jazz Mass.  

 

At the tea-concert in November 2013 in the Longhouse a packed audience was treated to a performance of light music. The music was followed by tea and scrumptious cakes with vintage china.

 

In November 2013 we joined the choir of King’s School (plus an orchestra) to sing Fauré's Requiem.
