WORLD PREMIERE CONCERT BY AYLESBURY CHORAL SOCIETY ON SATURDAY 8TH DECEMBER AT ST MARY’S CHURCH, AYLESBURY
Don’t miss the newly commissioned arrangement of local composer Chris William’s Tsunami Requiem, which the choir will sing accompanied by RAF Halton Voluntary Band at 7.30 pm on Saturday December 8th at St Mary’s Church, Aylesbury
The Tsunami Requiem is an intense, haunting and moving piece of music, inspired by the devastating tsunami, which struck Asia in 2004. The Requiem was first performed in its original arrangement at Royal Festival Hall in 2008, when it received a standing ovation. This new arrangement is for a wind band and we look forward to the opportunity to work with the RAF Halton Voluntary Band for the first time.
The concert will also feature a very different piece of music for the Christmas period written by Respighi called Laud To The Nativity, which tells the shepherds’ story. There will also be instrumental pieces and carols.
This will be the last in our 2018 series of concerts designed specifically to feature partnerships with local music groups and musicians, following our last highly successful event in June with Aylesbury Opera Group, when the choir performed famous opera pieces, supported by world class soloists.
Our soloists at the December concert will include the well known tenor, Adrian Thompson and the superb soprano soloist Victoria Joyce. Victoria performed at our last concert in June and was very popular with the audience.
