Local choir celebrates 10th anniversary
The Redland Green Choir celebrates its 10th anniversary with a concert on 1st December at St Matthew’s, Kingsdown.
The concert will feature Benjamin Britten’s St Nicolas Cantata, with a chamber ensemble and Rhodri Jones as soloist, together with some ‘greatest hits’ from the last ten years and a selection from Handel’s Messiah. Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions): see www.redlandgreenchoir.org.uk for details.
The 70-strong choir is non-auditioned and sings predominantly classical music. It rehearses at Redland Green School on Monday evenings, and anyone who is interested is very welcome to come along and try it out.
The choir is directed by Bristol-born rising star Nicholas Bromilow. Recent successes have included a performance of Verdi’s Requiem at the 1532 Performing Arts Centre and Beethoven’s choral symphony at Clifton Cathedral - these performances can be seen on YouTube. The choir has also sung at local community events such as the Redland May Fair.
The choir’s founder-director, Helen Bilkey and her successor, Emma Trounsom, will be attending this special event.
