Autumn Concert 2015
Saturday 3 October, Catholic Church of Christ, Prince of Peace, Weybridge.
Tickets now on sale.
The choir has been taking full advantage of its summer break to prepare in earnest for this year's Autumn Concert. After the great success of the Spring Concert in May we will be aiming to make our Autumn event even better. We have been busy practising many pieces new to the choir, and reviving some old favourites. So you can look forward to our dynamic young Musical Director Jonathan Kilhams coaxing the very best from us in the wonderful acoustic of this beautiful, modern church yet again.
We are very pleased that we will once again be welcoming young instrumentalists from the celebrated Yehudi Menuhin School as our guest performers. The choir has enjoyed a special relationship with the school for many years through its Director of Music and our Honorary President, Malcolm Singer.
Tickets at the bargain price of £10 are now available, either on-line HERE, or by telephoning 01252 326514. From 6th September you can also visit the St James' Church Parish Office in Weybridge on weekday mornings except Wednesdays to purchase them.
So, don't delay - secure your tickets soon!
Weybridge Male Voice Choir has been performing to audiences and raising money for good causes and national and international charities for nearly one hundred years. I consider it a real honour to be the Musical Director of this choir, and my hope and expectation is to take the choir to new heights. Every Musical Director has a different approach and different views on where they would like their choir to be. I feel it is important to share these views with you, the choir and audience.
What makes a good choir isn’t just down to the choice of repertoire and perfection of musical notes. I believe it is also down to the atmosphere created by its members and their shared love of singing. I have always said that you can tell whether a choir is happy before they have even started to sing. So a friendly and happy choir is foremost in my vision for the choir. The introduction of a pub singing group will only help to give members that camaraderie that can be brought in to weekly rehearsals, as members will have a chance to mix with singers they wouldn’t normally be singing next to.
