WANTAGE CHORAL SOCIETY
WELCOME TO WANTAGE CHORAL SOCIETY
We are a long-established mixed voice choir performing three concerts each year. We were delighted to re-start live rehearsals and concerts in Autumn 2021 after Lockdown and it was so good to get back together again and to do what we all love doing. We have been particularly pleased to welcome new members of all voices.
In April 2023, we performed Haydn's Creation
which was extremely well received and in July we had a Night at the Opera in Letcombe Village Hall, playing to a packed house.
In July we said farewell to our Music Director, Paul Burke. Paul was with us for over 10 years but for family reasons decided to relocate to Staffordshire.
We were delighted to announce that we had appointed Hannah Towndrow as our new
Hannah joined us in September and conducted our Christmas concert on Saturday November 25
in Wantage Parish Church when we performed Handel:Zadok the Priest and Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne; Mozart: Coronation Mass in C Major.
The concert was a sell-out and the audience was very complimentary about the high standard of the performance. Hannah (centre below)is pictured with the soloists - Jack Redman (Bass), Helena Moore (Soprano), Mia Serracino-Inglott (Mezzo-soprano)
and Toshi Ogita (Tenor).
Our next concert will be on Saturday 16 March 2024 at 19.30 in Wantage Parish Church. We will be performing the Fauré Requiem and the Duruflé Requiem, both with orchestra.So do come and enjoy two beautiful pieces of music.
