Our summer concert is always a light-hearted affair and is followed by our summer party. This year we will be singing two works by Leonard Bernstein – a choral suite from West Side Story and choral extracts from Wonderful Town. We will be joined by young singers from University College School who will sing parts of On the Town.
The term starts on 8 May 2019 and rehearsals are then every Wednesday (except 29 May) until the concert. If you have sung with us before, you should have received an email telling you how to register. If you would like to join us for this concert, you would be very welcome and should contact us via this website for more details.
Tickets are available at rehearsals or (with a booking fee) via Ticketsource.
Rehearsals start on 8 May 2019. They continue every Wednesday until 19 June 2019 – except 29 June (half term).
Full details of the rehearsal schedule are on the document which you can access here.
There are Youtube recordings of both works if you would like to see what is involved:
- Choral Suite from West Side Story – Part 1 can be found here and this page will also lead you to the other sections.
- Wonderful Town (Choral Highlights)
There are also learning aids for both Wonderful Town and West Side Story on John Fletcher’s music learning site. In order to use these files you need to register and pay a small subscirption fee, but his site is useful for learning a diverse and wide range of music.
