Join us on Saturday 23rd September 2017 for our our Mendelssohn Singing Day with Hilary Davan Wetton, Njabulo Madlala and Timothy End. We’ll be singing music by Mendelssohn, composers he influenced and those he was influenced by (including JS Bach, Bruckner and Sterndale Bennett) – purely for pleasure. You don’t need to be a member of the choir, so please do sign up: it promises to be a great day packed full of wonderful music.
