December sees the annual Carol Concert which this year will be held on Thursday 18th December, at Horizon Methodist Church, Ecclesall Road.
On 28th March 2015 the Chorus looks east with a performance of Rachmaninov’s Vespers. A set of 15 anthems for the Matins and Vespers services of the Eastern Orthodox church , the work abounds with rich, evocative harmonies and textures yet also transmits an aura of mystique.
The Vespers theme continues for the final concert of the season on 27th June 2015 when the Chorus presents the hugely popular Vespers of 1610 by Monteverdi. Laurie Ashworth and Jennifer France will join the Chorus as soprano soloists. Ben Williamson – countertenor, James Greer and Christoper Lemmings – tenors and Bradley Travis – bass will complete the line up of soloists. The South Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra will provide instrumental accompaniment.
