Other Local Musical Events
From time to time we get asked by other choirs or musical organisations about publicising their events...... these requests will turn up here.
Choral Concert on behalf of Lister Neo-natal unit
Saturday, Jan 26th, 2019 at 7:30pm in St. Mary's Church, Hitchin
At the moment we are still short of an oboist, french horns and a harpist, and it wouldn't be a bad thing if there were a few more tenors and basses...
If you know of anyone who you think might be interested please forward the link below to them, or let me have their contact details and I will approach them.
You may want to have a look at the link regardless, as it has a good summary of the rehearsals for the concert and also a link to the website that sells tickets. These are also available from Hitchin Initiative and David's bookshop.

Beethoven, Mozart and Dove (March 2019) - Fairhaven Singers
Saturday 23 March 2019, 7.30pm, Apex Theatre, Bury St Edmunds
Saturday 30 March 2019, 7.30pm, Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge
We are thrilled to be giving the premiere of a wonderful piece of music by one of the country’s leading composers, Jonathan Dove. His Sappho Sings sets fragments of poetry by Sappho, beautifully translated by Alasdair Middleton, in six short movements. Like all of Dove’s music, Sappho Sings is vibrant, lyrical, and intensely rhythmic, and the writing for orchestra is superbly imaginative. The Dove is preceded by Beethoven’s stirring Mass in C and Mozart’s vivacious Symphony no. 35. We are joined in these two gorgeous venues by our frequent collaborators, East Anglia Chamber Orchestra, and a quartet of charismatic soloists. You won’t want to miss this!
