When we resume in September, following our summer break, we’ll be rehearsing for a very special concert.
In the majestic surroundings of Tewkesbury Abbey on 10 November, we’ll be making our contribution to the national commemoration of the centenary of the Armistice that ended World War I on 11 November, 1918.
We have some wonderful music to sing, starting with Elgar’s For the Fallen, a magnificent and moving setting of lines by Laurence Binyon. We’ll follow that with John Rutter’s beautiful and consoling Requiem and the concert will end on a note of hope with the exciting anthem Awake! Awake! The World is Young by the highly-regarded Worcester-based composer, Ian Venables.
Rebecca McNaught will join our orchestra to play Elgar’s much-loved Cello Concerto.
Why not join us to sing this terrific programme?
New members are always welcome and we’d especially welcome additional altos, tenors and basses.
With this marvellous programme in the offing and some thrilling programmes already planned for the next couple of years, there’s never been a better time to join Philomusica.
