Autumn Season

Our autumn season started with our very succesful concert of Fauré and Tavener in St John's Smith Square, London. Our ladies' section then joined Prague Symphony Orchestra for two performances of Mahler's Third Symphony (in Basingstoke and in London). We then joined forces with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Brighton Festival Youth Choir to perform our popular annual Christmas concert in Brighton Dome.

We now have just one concert remaining in 2019 - a Raymond Gubbay Christmas concert in the Royal Festival Hall in London.


New Members

In October we held our annual Open Rehearsal, where we throw open one of our normal rehearsals to anyone who would like to come along and sing with us for the evening. Many of our guests then stayed on for an audition, with the result that we were able to welcome 13 new members.

If you are think of becoming a member, you don't need to wait until our next Open Rehearsal - we would love to hear from you at any time. See our Join page to find out how.


Recording at Abbey Road Studios

We started 2019 with a recording session at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London. Over the years we have done quite a bit of work there, but it's always exciting to go back.

It was established as a recording studio in 1931, and just walking along the corridors looking at the photos of all the people who have recorded there over the decades makes you realise how much musical history is bound up in this one building.

On this occasion we were in the legendary Studio Two, where The Beatles made their famous recordings.
