We’re always happy to welcome new members to the choir and there are no auditions – just an enthusiasm for singing choral works and a willingness to do some private practice, if necessary.
However, in March 2020, we are performimg Bach’s “St Matthew Passion” and we really need some extra tenors to bolster that section of the choir and to make the concert spectacular. Rehearsals for this concert will begin in December. Please spread the word!
A great evening at The Menuhin Hall! The programme featured “Ein Deutsches Requiem” and “Liebeslieder Waltzes” all sung in German (a challenge for some of us!) with piano accompaniment. The soloists were Rebecca Hardwick, soprano, and James Atkinson, bass, with pianists Linda Bridges and Pam Kent.
The following pictures were all taken by John Siviter with kind permission of The Menuhin Hall.
Our next concert featuring Brahms “Requiem” and “Liebeslieder Waltzes” is at the Menuhin Hall, Stoke D’Abernon on 8th June at 7:30pm. The hall is responsible for ticketing for this concert and tickets are now available from them. You need to book online, via this link. Make sure you let any friends know about this ticketing arrangement. Also see our concert flyer for details.
Our conductor, Joel is not doing things by half! One marathon would be enough, but he’s running three this Spring to raise funds for Shelter! Try to go along to the London one on Sunday 28th April to cheer him on, but certainly log onto his fund-raising page and sponsor him.

In June 2019, we will be performing Brahms “Requiem” and Brahms “Liebeslieder Waltzes”. For those wanting to obtain their own scores, we will be using the Peters Editions for both works. As we will be practicing for the February social at the start of 2019, you have until February to buy the Brahms scores.
Tickets are now available for our next concert in June – see details on the flyer or contact: tickets(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)emberchoral.org.uk ! This will also feature a short talk about the work in the concert breaks by our guest, Irina Walters.
