Hampstead Chorus‘ Spring term
Our next term started on Wednesday 9th January with rehearsals for Nelson Mass by Haydn, Funeral music for Queen Mary by Purcell and In Ecclesiis by Gabrieli. Rehearsals are on Wednesdays at UCS – with breaks for half term and for the Easter holidays.
Our concert will take place on Saturday 27 April 2019 in the Great Hall at UCS. It will be conducted by our Musical Director, Simon Walton and accompanied by professional soloists and orchestra – as usual. Tickets are available online via Ticketsource (with a booking fee) or at rehearsals.
If you have not yet registered but would like to sing, please come along to a rehearsal to register.
The subscription for this term will be £75, of which £60 represents the term’s fee and £15 the cost of tuition; this is equivalent to less than £6 per rehearsal.
The score of the Haydn Mass will be available for £15 but we have very few copies left – we will do our best to provide you with a score but you may need to obtain your own. We will be using the Barenreiter edition (the same edition that we used when the choir last sang this piece in 2010). The total cost for those subscribing and buying a copy of the Haydn from us will therefore be £90. We will provide free photocopies of the Purcell and the Gabrieli for all singers.
Rehearsals start on 9 January 2019. They continue every Wednesday until 24 April 2019 – except 20 February (half term) and 3 and 10 April (Easter break).
