Event: Summer Concert 2019
Saturday 6th July 2019 at 7:30pm, St Albans Parish Church, North Harrow HA2 7PF
The term ‘Choral Classics’ in this context is really just a convenient over-arching theme for what is an eclectic selection of choral music that Simon Williams, our Director of Music, has assembled for this final concert of the season. None of the pieces require soloists – so no respite for the choir on this occasion! – and many of them will be familiar to the audience or will, at the very least, be highly accessible.
The music spans 6 centuries of choral composition, from William Byrd in the fifteen hundreds to Arvo Pärt – reputedly the most widely performed living composer. Purcell, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Bach and Britten are among the contributors from the intervening centuries.
Several of the concert pieces are already within our repertoire – notably Salve Regina by Arvo Pärt which we performed to large and highly appreciative audiences in the Netherlands during our short tour of 2017. Others are new to the choir and with sufficient challenges to keep us firmly on our toes – particularly those pieces with minimal or zero accompaniment.
The last four concerts that Harrow Choral Society has performed, including those at Harrow School Speech Room and the Elliott Hall, have been sell-outs and we are hoping that this one will continue in the same vein. As has become traditional for our Summer Concert in recent years, the venue will be St Alban’s Parish Church, North Harrow, where the choir was actually founded more than 80 years ago.
