Saturday, April 4, brings John Rutter's 'Requiem' and Leonard Bernstein's 'Chichester Psalms' to The New Life Church, Brumby Wood Lane, Scunthorpe at 7.30. This will be conducted by Sarah Tennant-Flowers.
Sadly, we have decided that the above concert could pose an unacceptable risk to both our members and audience. It has therefore been deferred until July 10, 2021.
Further details will follow when available.
Saturday, November 21, brings a collaboration with Lincoln Choral Society and the award-winning Scunthorpe Co-operative Junior Choir. The main work will be 'There was a Child' by Jonathon Dove. The concert has been generously funded by
and will be at The Baths Hall, Doncaster Road, Scunthorpe.
Unfortunately this exciting development has also been suspended due to uncertainty about the Coronavirus pandemic. Any further developments will be published when known.
As a result of the pandemic it is currently not possible to plan rehearsals, let alone concerts. It has therefore been agreed that we will shortly commence electronic online rehearsals, using 'ZOOM!'.
The work chosen is, appropriately, entitled 'FREEDOM! THE POWER OF SONG'. This has been composed by Alexander l'Estrange and consists of settings of words by his wife Joanna Forbes l'Estrange. Many will remember our concert of April 2018, when we performed Alexander l'Estrange's 'Zimbe', exciting settings of African music.
'FREEDOM! THE POWER OF SONG' is the fifth in a series of 40-minute community choral works for SATB chorus, massed unison children's choir and instrumental quintet. This powerful new work celebrates the important role communal singing has played throughout history, bringing people together in solidarity in times of upheaval, struggle and change.
Further details, including rehearsal dates and instructions regarding access and use of ZOOM for those fearful of the technology will follow shortly.
This is an exciting new development which will enable choral singers to pursue their passion at this difficult time when it would otherwise be denied them.
