• A journey through water!

    Saturday, September 22nd
    All Saints Church, Hove, 7.30pm

    An evening to both celebrate our partnership with Season Sponsor, Southern Water but also to share our vision
    of the importance of the work both organisations do to make our area a better place to live.
    With the help of Southern Water, we have commissioned a brand new work from local composer, Paul Lewis, which we are premiering this evening.
    All the works in this concert are ‘water based’ to highlight the enormous importance and vital place that water plays in our lives, something that is too often ignored or certainly, taken for granted.

    Mendelssohn – The Hebrides Overture, ‘Fingal’s Cave’
    Handel – Water Music
    Elgar – Sea Pictures, soloist – Angharrad Lyddon
    Britten – Four Sea Interludes
    Engineerium – Paul Lewis

    Conductor – Christopher Braime

  • V E R D I – R E Q U I E M

    Saturday November 17th
    St Bartholomews Church, Brighton, 7.30pm

    To help commemorate this week of remembrance, we are performing possibly the world’s most powerful requiem.
    Guiseppe Verdi wrote this enormous requiem in memory of his close friend Alessandro Manzoni and used all his skills as a dramatic operatic composer to create a work that has become one of the staples in the repertoire.
    Scored for double choir, large orchestra and four soloists, not to mention an especially commissioned new bass drum, this work will literally shake the foundations of the church.
    The orchestra is joined by two of the area’s foremost and finest choirs with four of this country’s finest soloists.
    This will be an evening to remember.
