There are a lot of opportunities to join in the music-making at St Giles’ in the next few weeks, especially if you enjoy singing! There are choral evensongs on Sunday 11th of August and Sunday 8th of September. And then, on Sunday 6th of October, we are delighted to be organising a concert based around Vivaldi’s stunning ‘Gloria’.
Performed by a ‘Come & Sing’ choir, this magnificent work is divided into 12 movements, ranging from festive virtuosity to poignant sadness. There are wonderful aria-like movements from the soloists and uplifting choruses from the whole choir – this is an event not to be missed.
The first half will feature solo performances; the organ will be played by Norman Harper and the conductor is Ashley Valentine. Suggested donations on the door are £6 for adults and children go free. All proceeds will go towards the organ restoration fund.
If you’re interested in joining in with this event or the evensongs, please let us know here.
