Writing with news of two exciting concerts taking place over the next few days at Saint Bartholomew’s! Firstly, on Monday 28th June at 7:30pm, our summer series concludes with “An evening with Fraser Wilson and friends”, during which Fraser and a number of his musical friends will perform a wide variety of their favourite music, highlights including:
• Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor (famous from Fantasia and any number of horror movies) in a thrilling and novel arrangement for piano and organ.
• the Irish premiere of a beautiful song cycle by Alan Smith, Augeries of Innocence, for mezzosoprano, piano, flute and cello.
• choral items of all kinds, from Stanford and Bach to A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square.
• and lots more to whet every musical appetite! As they say, “Fun for all the family” !
Friends from everywhere, music lovers – please join us for a lovely evening’s music-making! What’s more, admission to this concert will be FREE; there will be a retiring collection for church funds to which all will be asked to contribute generously. Sign up to the guest list here!
That’s followed the next day by a transatlantic treat all the way from DC; the Washington Women’s Chorus give a special concert here next Tuesday (29 June) at 7.30pm.
“The mission of the Washington Women’s Chorus is to give voice to the great variety of music written for women’s voices by performing works ranging from the 11th-century chants of Abbess Hildegard von Bingen, to compositions by Vivaldi and Brahms, to new works by American and international composers.” All will be revealed on Tuesday!
Again, admission will be free, and a retiring collection will be taken for church funds.
