Grant brings Brahms to Stowmarket!

Local choral society Stowmarket Chorale was delighted recently to receive news of the success of their grant application to Stowmarket Town Council.

The £500 grant will help fund the Chorale’s concert of Brahms’ popular Requiem, Mendelssohn’s Hear My Prayer and pieces by Purcell and Britten. It will take place on Saturday 30th March, at 7.30, at the United Reformed Church, Stowmarket – tickets are £15 (children/students free) from the Chorale’s website or on the door.

The members of the 65-strong choir meet to rehearse every Wednesday evening at Chilton Primary School, enjoying the well known benefits of singing – physical and mental health, wellbeing, social cohesion, and downright fun! They put on three or four concerts a year, hiring professionals to take the solo and instrumental roles, and enable the residents of Stowmarket area to enjoy high quality live classical music on their doorstep.
