New term challenges for Concentus Chorale

In being fully rested from their holiday break, Concentus Chorale is about to engage in a new term, starting on Monday (September 2), in preparation for an exciting Christmas programme

With a series of highly successful concerts behind them, this dynamic choir has admirably demonstrated that singing can be invigorating and exciting in both performance and appreciation.

New members are actively being encouraged to come along and see what is on offer in rehearsing for the forthcoming concerts, ‘Echoes of Christmas’ which are being performed on December 14 and December 21.

The concert will include well known music such as O Holy Night, The Twelve Days of Christmas, In Paradisim (Faure Requiem), A Clare Benediction, How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings (Brahms Requiem), Nimrod, The Star Carol, and Colours of Christmas, while Rhythm of Life, Gloria (Puccini Messe de Gloria) and an unusual but trendy arrangement of Go Tell It To The Mountain will all help to raise the roof.

Being of friendly disposition and able to sing in tune are the only requirements. The ability to be able to read music is not essential but you do need to be enthusiastic and dedicated to perform to high quality concert standard, both of which are essential features in the making of great music.

Under the leadership of Adrian White, an experienced bass soloist and an established Musical Director, rehearsals for this exciting and challenging new term start on Monday (and continuue on Mondays thereafter) at the United Reformed Church Hall, Upperton Road (junction Watts Lane), Eastbourne, 7.30pm.

All voices, particularly Bass and Tenor ranges, are most welcome to come along and join in rehearsals and be part of this great dynamic sound. For more detailscontact secretary Evelyn Smith, 01323 643358 or email supergran009@aol.com
