Almost every year, the Bollington Festival Choir hosts a Singing Day open to the public. In recent years, the work studied has been the main one in the summer concert. Join the Choir to explore the delights of Brahms’ A German Requiem, sung in English.
Singing Days are always a relaxed affair, with a chance for singers to get to know each other in refreshment and lunch breaks. Singers may just wish to come for the day, but starting on April 14 th , there are Tuesday evening rehearsals before the work features in a concert at the Arts Centre on Sunday 14 th June, with Brahms’ own accompaniment for piano duet. His Requiem is like no other, in that it uses texts from the Old Testament to reflect on death and the afterlife in some of the most beautiful
choral music ever written, including How lovely are they dwellings
Doors and registration from 9am. Event starts 9.30am and runs until 4.30pm.
The fee of £15 (£5 for 18s and under) includes music loan and tea/coffee and biscuits.
Booking essential via 01625 511881.
