At the end of November, Stowmarket Chorale performed their Christmas concert at the United Reformed Church, excerpts from J.S. Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, and it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, and a great start to the Christmas season.
During December, the choir will be singing carols at the Icanho centre in Stowmarket and holding a sponsored carol sing to boost choir funds. Looking forward the choir have planned an exciting programme to keep them busy. They have arranged a Singing Day in Woolpit village hall on 8th February when members and other singers will sing Verdi’s Requiem. That promises to be an amazing experience and will begin to prepare the choir for their appearance at The Apex in 2021!
Stowmarket Chorale has stepped up their advertising and promotion efforts which is paying off because the choir continues to grow with new members, and ticket sales are better than ever. The choir has a website www.stowmarketchorale.org.uk, and a Facebook page.
Choirs are gaining in popularity, due to the knowledge that singing is said to be hugely beneficial for many reasons, including the feel-good factor of taking part and creating something beautiful with a group of like-minded people. This fortunate choir will enjoy learning the music of Faure’s Requiem in the Spring Term, which they will perform in Stowmarket on 21st March 2020.
Future concerts include Will Todd’s Mass in Blue and Handel’s Messiah. For further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
