Newent Choral Society – our next concert!
Following our successful concert of Durufle’s Requiem in St. Mary’s Church, Newent at the end of November, Newent Choral Society are now looking forward to something completely different.
“A Night at the Opera” features favourite opera choruses, including ‘Chorus of the Hebrew Slave’, the ‘Triumphal scene from Aida’, the ‘Anvil Chorus’ and many others. We will have soprano, tenor and bass soloists, with the last two performing the wonderful duet ‘the Pearl Fishers’. Held at Newent Community School on 23rd March, 7.30pm it promises to be an exciting and lively evening.
Last year we were joined by Huntley School, who stole the show in ‘Ahoy’
This year we will be joined by children from Picklenash School, Newent and we look forward to giving them this exciting opportunity.
We will be accompanied by Christopher Guild, and directed by Julian Whittaker, who is leading us into a new, exciting future.
There will be a bar and our famous raffle. To find out more go to our website https://www.newentchoral.co.uk or email us at email@example.com
