Choirs of Angels
Our 5 November concert at St Barnabas Cathedral, Nottingham, was entitled Choirs of Angels.
After our usual Christmas Concert at Patchings Arts Centre we sang one on behalf of Framework, a new charity for us.
Works by two modern composers whose writing for choirs is inspirational - Carl Rütti and Eric Whitacre - were explored during the 'Come and Sing' in January and will be performed at our spring concert in March.
In May we contributed to the Nottingham Symphony Orchestra's French programme on 26 May, when we joined the Derby Bach Choir and the Derwent Singers in an almost complete performance of Ravel's colourful and sensual ballet music 'Daphnis and Chloe' and other pieces.
In the spring Charles Tebbs joined us as our regular accompanist.
In July our Summer Concert Flights of Fancy was again at the West Bridgford Methodist Church, together with the Imperfect Fifth saxophone quartet.
