SOLIHULL

Our new 2016-2017 Concert Season has been announced.


We start the new season with a bit of an experiment - an afternoon concert. We know some of our audience don’t like going out in the cold dark evening in November, so this year we’ll start our concert at 3.00, and anticipate ending around 5.00. The concert will contain many of our, and we hope your favourite items.


Our annual Christmas Celebration is on Wednesday 13 December this year, and we will once again welcome the wonderful SongSquad from St Alphege School under the direction of Allison Taylor (who, incidentally, will also be singing solo in our Choral Matinée in November).


The orchestral concert in May will present two quite different settings of the Requiem text. Cherubini’s was written in 1816 in memory of Louis XVI and was the first Requiem to be written purely for concert performance. John Rutter, on the other hand wrote his setting, which includes texts not from the requiem mass, in 1985. The two works couldn’t be more different, and we hope you will appreciate the contrast between them.


Full details will appear on our website, and you can download our Concert Brochure.
