The Year Ahead
We now have two concerts led by Graham under our belts and are looking forward to the rest of this year. There is plenty planned.
Following our very successful recent concert featuring music from film and stage our next full performance is scheduled for Saturday 22 July. Entitled Around the World in 80 Minutes, it will include a very eclectic mix ranging from John Rutter and Will Todd to South American Latin beats, African chants, and modern Scandinavian classics. In the words of the song…’Something familiar, something peculiar, something for everyone’…!
However, before that, on Wednesday 26 April we shall be supporting Cancer Research UK at their supporters’ evening in St Thomas’s Church in Salisbury where we shall be dipping into our repertoire of Film and Stage music.
In June, SCC has been invited to spend the weekend in Hay on Wye collaborating with Fiona Evan’s choir in workshops and a short performance.
Dare we mention Christmas? Knowing how booked up everyone gets in December, we are giving you plenty of notice that our Christmas Concert is scheduled for the 9th December. Save the date! There will be much more information about this nearer the time.
Salisbury Community Choir is a thriving amateur choir with over 130 members
The choir sings for the sheer love of it, but also challenges itself to develop up to and beyond its potential. The choir is non auditioned, some members read music and some do not. The mixture works and with patient encouragement from our fantastic Musical Director, the choir achieves amazing performance successes, whilst having a lot of fun along the way!
We are ambitious and adventurous musically, commissioning new works and organising and performing in both small and large scale concerts all over the UK. We regularly tour abroad, mainly to Europe, but have adventured further afield.
The SCC has a big heart and we have a real community focus, supporting each other and fundraising for a diverse range of charities, from Hospices to Homelessness.
If you love to sing, have a spirit of adventure and would like to be part of our community why not come and try us out!
The SCC thrives on the variety of the music it sings, from choral classics to classic pop!
Recent repertoire includes:
- Alexander L’Estrange & Joanna Forbes-L’Estrange: Freedom! – The Power of Song (SCC commission)
- Martin Palmeri: Misa a Buenos Aires Misatango
- Will Todd: The City Garden (SCC commission)
- Bob Chilcott: The Salisbury Vespers (SCC joint commission)
- Medleys of music from The Beatles, The Carpenters, James Bond and Gershwin
