A Summer Extravaganza!

We are back – and thrilled to announce our summer concert programme.  Gilbert and Sullivan’s sparkling first extant collaboration, “Trial by Jury” in combination with Brahms’s dreamily romantic “Love Song Waltzes”  is our 2019 summer treat.  The sharp-eyes among you will notice the word “extant”.  That’s because it isn’t actually their first. It’s just the first one we have.  Their very first, “Thespis”, was lost, except for one chorus which was recycled in “The Pirates Of Penzance”.  (Anybody know which one?)

Brahms’s waltz songs are not as well known, but are a real find – perfect summer evening music.  And they will be heard again in October when we have a REALLY important event coming up! Watch this space!
