“Welcome to the Bach Choir’s 2018-19 season of music.
If you are new to the area and looking for a choir, or are thinking of returning to singing after a break, then come and join us any Wednesday evening at Lillington School.
This will be a year of transition for the choir, as we shall see the retirement of Nigel Stark and the arrival of our new Musical Director, Christopher Cromar.
Nigel Stark has directed the Bach Choir for thirteen years, and in that time has challenged us with programmes including everything from Oratorio to Opera, Bach to Bernstein, and many more in between! Under his baton the choir has performed a variety of music, some of it new to us, and we have all learned and grown as musicians.
In the Spring we shall be singing Mozart’s Requiem and Haydn’s Theresa Mass, to be directed by Christopher and performed on March 30th in All Saints’ Church, Leamington Spa. We shall be accompanied by the Beauchamp Sinonietta, a local orchestra who we often work with, supporting each other in the varied music in the South Warwickshire area.
In Summer we are delighted to announce a special event for the choir- a première of Classic FM’s John Brunnning’s new work, Five unaccompanied motets. We will also be singing his ‘Amazing Day’ and John Rutter’s Feel the Spirit This is a wonderful opportunity for the choir and will be performed at All Saints’ church. It may even be recorded for Classic FM…watch this space.”
