Philomusica for music and fun - the friendliest choir in the Three Counties

Welcome to the website of Philomusica, the place for music, variety and fun!

 

We have a vision for Philomusica: we're continuing to build the choir that:

  • everyone wants to join
  • everyone wants to hear

Christmas Celebration

We were thrilled and moved by the success of our ‘Lest we Forget’ concert in Tewkesbury Abbey on 8 November. It was a privilege to sing to a large and appreciative audience in the Abbey on the eve of Remembrance Sunday. We believe our concert was, as we intended, a fitting prelude to the annual ‘Tewkesbury Remembers’ commemoration the following day.

 

After this programme, which deliberately struck a fairly sober tone, we’re now looking forward to more light-hearted fare in our Christmas concerts.

 

Our programme is entitled ‘A Wildlife Christmas’. Linda has devised a delightful and varied programme of music, interspersed with a few readings, the principal theme of which is the relationship between Christmas and all creatures great and small. Naturally, there will be several opportunities for the audience to join in by singing some of the best-loved carols

 

We are delighted to welcome two groups of young singers to join us at these concerts. Our own Philominor will sing in the concert at Kempsey while at Lonsdale Road Methodist Church we will be joined by the Longlevens Junior School Glee Club.

 

The concerts take place at St Mary’s Church, Kempsey, WR5 3JH on Saturday 13th  December and at Lonsdale Road Methodist Church, Gloucester, GL2 0TA on Saturday 20th December.

 

Both concerts start at 4.00 pm. 

 

Tickets for both concerts cost £8 and accompanied children aged under 16 will be admitted free. You can buy tickets on the door or by emailing tickets@philomusica.org.uk Tickets also available by telephoning 01905 820140 (Kempsey) or 01452 506417 (Lonsdale Road).
