Michael Tippett: Child of Our Time
22nd March at the Levi Fox Hall
(at the King Edwards School for Boys)
This piece is appropriate to the anniversary of the First World War, though it was written during the Second. It is is about man's inhumanity to man.
Modern and powerful, it is punctuated by five melodic and Moving Negro Spirituals.
Thank-you to our new Sponsors the Stratford Audi & The Eden Group - see below.
Welcome to the Stratford-upon-Avon Choral Society
We are a vibrant choral society, singing the great classical and romantic choral works as well as lesser known and more modern pieces. The core of our repertoire is 18th and 19th century works from composers such as Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Elgar and Mendelssohn as well as 20th century composers such as Parry, Britten and Karl Jenkins.
We perform four or five concerts per year, with our main season running from September through to Easter. We then usually have a lighter Summer season. Most of our concerts are held in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon, where William Shakespeare was christened and is buried.
The society includes both singing and non-singing members and you will find on this web site information about becoming a member, as well as about our future programme and information for members such as rehearsal dates.
Please have a good look around the site and let us know if it includes all the information you are looking for. We always welcome all ideas about how we can improve it and we will incorporate as many as we can.
Anyone interested in joining the Choir, or merely seeking any further information, can call our membership secretary Sheila Bligh on 01789 29714401789 297144 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
