FUTURE CONCERTS AND CHORAL EVENTS
There will be two free concerts during November at which we hope to cheer everyone with a return to live music-making.
Come December we also expect to sing carols around Churchill and Wrington on 14th December. We also hope to be at Burrington church carol service. We hope to see you there.
All performances during 2020 and the first half of 2021 were
cancelled because of the pandemic. That included our concert
featuring Vivaldi's Gloria which we hope to revisit in the future.
For further information please contact us and we will gladly add you to our mailing list. We will be in touch when tickets for our concerts go on sale.

What a lovely occasion our 20th Birthday Concert and Tea turned out to be. There were a good number of previous members with us, and many of our loyal supporters and families too.
In March 2019 our concert was in conjunction with Churchill Academy students and Sixth Form. The school students excelled in a selection of instrumental and vocal groups and joined the Trinity Singers in a setting of the Lord's Prayer by Janacek and "Canticle of the Sun" by Andrew Tyrrell as well as Parry's "I was Glad" and Elgar's "Lux Aeterna". We were joined by Julia Hammersley on harp and Claire Alsop played the organ.
In October 2018 we performed a concert of music to commemorate 1918, entitled endings and beginnings. The concert programme included music by Elgar, Bernstein, Eleanor Daley, Parry and Stravinsky.
In April 2018 we were joined by Rhodri Prys Jones, Zoë Maitland and the boy choristers of St Mary Redcliffe in a programme that included Benjamin Britten's Saint Nicholas, choral folksongs by Gustav Holst and Serenade to Music by Ralph Vaughan Williams. We were also pleased to welcome The Lochrian Ensemble.
In Autumn 2017 we joined up with The Chamber Choir of Churchill Academy and Sixth Form, perform a selection of choral works which included Allegri's Miserere, folk songs by Gustav Holst and Vaughan Williams.
In Spring 2017 we joined up with Churchill Academy, Bristol Cathedral School and Bristol Cathedral Choir School Choral Society to perform J.S Bach's Magnificat in D, and Bernstein's Chichester Psalms.
