Gala Concert Saturday 17 June 2017
This was a wonderful concert enjoyed by a full church on a beautiful summer evening.
We hosted reception drinks and nibbles in a marquee in the churchyard, then treated the audience to a tight and powerful performance of Mozart’s Requiem full of drama, supported by professional soloists and visiting members of Vocalium and King Alfred Singers.
After further refreshments the second half of the concert included our anniversary commission, the evocative ‘Let Every Voice’ by Will Todd, which received a joyous reception.
Our sincere thanks to our generous sponsors who made the Gala Concert possible.
