Local events of interest!

hymnathonHi All,

I thought I would repost the local musical events that we announced at last session.
First the Hospice Hymnathon 2015.  It takes place Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 June 2015 at Lancing College Chapel.  It’s being produced by Friends of Sussex Hospices and is a very worthy cause.  Carol and I will not be involved but if any of you want to organize a group to go, that’s great.  There is more information in the link above.

I grew up singing hymns and love them dearly but unfortunately most of the notes lie in places that cause my voice some distress, so I respectfully beg off.

Lewes SingersThe Lewes Singers are performing the Vivaldi Gloria (by Candlelight!) on Sunday 21 December at 6pm at St. Michael’s Church on the High St in Lewes.  Nick Houghton is conducting and there is a small orchestra led by Julia Bishop.  This is a very fine amateur group and worth your time.  Further info in the link.

The East Sussex Community Choir and Orchestra (also Nicholas Houghton) will be performing Bach’s Christmas Oratorio plus Christmas carols for choir and audience on Saturday 20th December at Lewes Town Hall at 7:30pm.  I know that several of you are involved in this which is great.  It’s a wonderful piece.

Carol says I should also tout the virtues of an upcoming concert that I am singing the solo tenor work in.  The East Sussex Bach Choir is performing C.P.E. Bach’s Magnificat and the Haydn “Nelson Mass” at St John sub Castro on Saturday 6th December at 7:30pm.
