Stretton Choral Society
2017 - 2018
Our Christmas Concert 'Alleluia' took place before an appreciative audience on Saturday December 2nd and in a move away from the format of previous years it contained several smaller works by Buxtehude, Thompson (Alleluia), Finzi (In Terra Pax) and Vaughan Williams (Fantasia on Christmas Carols and The First Noel) intermingled with carols for the audience to join in. The Spring Concert (scheduled for Saturday May 5th 2018) comprises the Schubert Mass in G and Eternal Light - a requiem by Howard Goodall, plus short supporting pieces by Beethoven and Mendelssohn. Rehearsals commence on Thursday 4th January 2018.
New members, particularly tenors. are always very welcome to join us - see the Membership / Joining page. Please not that the 2018/9 concerts will have a variation for normal in that in 2019 we plan to perform Bach's St John Passion in the parish church of St Lawrence on the evening of Good Friday, 19th April.
