We had a memorable concert in Pershore Abbey in March, singing Mozart’s Requiem to a really enthusiastic audience. For our Summer concerts Linda has devised a super programme entitled ‘Water Music’. We’ll be singing Haydn’s ‘Nelson’ Mass, which takes its name from Admiral Lord Nelson, followed by a selection of lighter pieces with watery themes. It’s a fun programme. Details of where the concerts will take place are on our ‘Where to hear us’ page
We’ll be giving a very special concert in Tewkesbury Abbey on 10 November, the eve of Remembrance Sunday. We’ll be performing music by Elgar and Worcester composer, Ian Venables as well as John Rutter’s lovely Requiem. This will be our contribution to the commemoration of the end of the Great War. We aim to make it a concert to remember.
If you’re interested in joining Philomusica to sing with us we’d be very keen to hear from you, especially if you’re a bass. As Linda says: “There are no auditions. Instead we have a trial period of a month which gives new recruits the chance to see if they like the Philomusica experience: almost without exception they do.”
