Upcoming Season

This Past Season

Regal, triumphant, nostalgic, spiritual and sentimental…

This season of concerts spans a vast array of heartfelt musical expression.

Hugh Brewster has written and produced a programme Royal Splendour, with music that spans everything from Mendelssohn’s song ‘Italien’ Op.8, No.3 to music from the recent coronation of King Charles III. Joining Hugh in the narration will be actress Brigitte Robinson in a program that includes a multimedia screenshow of archival images and video.

Handel’s Messiah is a perennial Christmas favourite: a colourful journey of musical highs and lows. However, as in the ending of any great epic, triumph reigns.

But Christmas is principally about our yesteryears, looking back, remembering and hearing those carols that you’ve heard all your lives. Old, new, rearranged, tarted up, reflective and humorous. “Tis the Season.” Let’s sing!

On Good Friday we assume a more sombre cloak of incredible musical faith. Seven Last Words from the Cross by James MacMillan, written for string orchestra and choir, is a dramatic powerhouse of brilliant musical writing. I believe James is the most significant composer of our day. Don’t miss this one!

And finally, Warm Breath of Spring: Folksongs & Spirituals. Last season’s concert was so successful, we had to do it again. There is such an abundance of wonderful literature for this type of programme with musical arrangements from across the globe. So much so that we plan to record this repertoire for Naxos Records.

So there it is — this season’s offerings. As always, our concerts strive to transport listeners in a way that only the sonorities of choral music can achieve. I’m sure that you will be moved by the music as much as the choir and I will be while performing it.
