Saturday April 30th 2016 - 3:30pm (note early start time!) in St Edmund's Church, Southwold, IP18 6JA:
Southend Boys and Girls Choirs: with Roger Humphrey, conductor
Southwold Concert Series and the Southwold Town Mayor, Councillor Melanie Tucker, are delighted to invite you to a FREE concert by the hugely popular Southend Boys and Girls Choirs. The choirs are returning to give their 6th concert in Southwold since 2009.
This concert is absolutely free for all audience members, with a retiring collection taken to support the Town Mayor's two nominated charities, St Barnabas Care Home and the Southwold Music Trust.
'The heavenly voices of the Southend Choirs...' - The Daily Telegraph
The Southend Choirs have recently performed at venues including the BBC Proms, St Peter's Basilica in Rome, St Martin in the FIelds, singing alongside leading lights such as Aled Jones, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and British Youth Opera. This concert will feature a wide variety of well-known and popular vocal classics, suitable for all ages, guaranteed to inspire and uplift.
Seating for the concert is unreserved, with the doors opening at 3pm. There will be no tickets on sale in advance - just arrive on the day, although we recommend doing so in good time to secure a seat! The concert will last approximately one hour and a half, with an interval, during which refreshments will be available.
'In the Albert Hall's domed splendour, all elements of the well-rehearsed Southend Choirs ... sounded triumphantly at home.' - The Times
Our latest concert was Saturday 30th April 2016 at 3:30pm:
This event was hosted by the Southwold Town Mayor, Councillor Melanie Tucker, and was completely FREE for all!
Over 300 people came and enjoyed a wonderful performance by Southend Boys and Girls Choirs.
There was a retiring collection for the two Mayor's nominated charities: St Barnabas Care Home, and the Southwold Music Trust, which raised over £500 after expenses for the concert were deducted.
Thank you to everyone who supported us!
Further events for later in 2016 will be announced shortly.
