Brahms German Requiem and Vaughan Williams Five Mystical Songs Saturday 13th April in Brentwood Cathedral.
The concert was a joint effort with Brentwood Choral Society and Ingatestone Choral Society coming together to sing two marvellous contrasting pieces of music, the Vaughan Williams quite calm and pastoral - Brahms very lively and strenuous.The pieces were accompanied by an excellent six piece ensemble plus pianoforte/organ with three talented soloists all brought together by our conductor Harry Bradford, a brilliant combination and much appreciated by an enthusiastic audience.
Christmas Concert Saturday 30th November in the Ingatestone URC, very well attended and received by an enthusiastic audience, we sang Handel’s Messiah (first part) and a selection of carols and readings with audience participation. Four wonderful young soloists helped it to make a great evening of music making, followed of course by wine and mince pies, (with nothing left at the end!) A great way to celebrate the festive season, well done everybody.
Harry our very able conductor who is unfortunately leaving us so this was his last concert, we are having a party for him the following week before he leaves, he will be missed and a hard act to follow, we wish him every success in his careerer.
