Verdi’s Requiem at The Royal Festival Hall – May 2016
In May 2016 we joined forces with Berkhamstead and Chorleywood Choral Societies to form English Philharmonia Chorus – a 260 strong choir, with a 60 piece orchestra, filling the Royal Festival Hall with an audience of nearly 2,000 people! Many thanks to Michael Maggs for these photos talken during rehearsals and of our performance.
Christmas Concert 2015 at St Mary’s Church, Petworth
The atmosphere couldn’t have been more ‘Christmassy’ at St. Mary’s Church on 19th December! Once again we sold out of tickets as our Christmas Concert is now a feature of everyone’s Christmas in Petworth. We sang a terrifically varied repertoire from Ramirez’s folk drama of the Nativity, favourites from Chris Williams’ Nowell! Nowell! songbook to a fun-filled and much-enjoyed rendition of Jingle Bells! We also listened to the amusing ‘Mr Mozart Takes a Sleigh Ride’ played by Phil Scriven and some lovely seasonal pieces by English Philharmonia. This was all peppered with everyone’s much loved traditional Christmas Carols of course!
We owe our thanks to Andrii Kaplanovskyi for taking such wonderful photos and capturing the essence of the evening. For those who would like to download these photos in high definition, here is a temporary link to Andrii’s Web Album.
Here are the photos, but once again the best definition of these can be found on our Facebook page (click on the link on the right hand side of this page) where they can be seen in larger size and better quality:
Summer Concert 2015 at Arundel Catheral
We packed out the cathedral at our Summer Concert in June 2015, singing Fauré’s Requiem, Vaughan Williams’ 5 Mystical songs, Cecilia McDowall’s beautiful Ave Maris Stella and a composition by one of our choir members, In Flanders Fields by Brian Knowles with soloists Dyfed Wyn Evans (Baritone) and Emma Harding (Soprano). We also listened to Suite Antique by John Rutter and were honoured to be joined by English Philharmonia strings lead by Matthew Scriven, and Ian Mullin playing the flute. All in all a great evening was had by all!
Here’s a photo gallery of the evening, but do visit our Facebook page (click on the link on the right hand side of this page) where they can be seen in larger size and better quality:
