BEWDLEY CHORAL SOCIETY & STOURPORT CHORAL
Saturday 20th May 2017
This concert brings together for the first time two local choirs under the direction of Alastair Elliott, who also separately leads each choral group in their normal repertoires.
The concert fulfils a dream for Alastair, who has long wanted to combine the two groups to perform a major choral work requiring larger orchestral and vocal forces. The choirs will together assemble 100 voices, with their strengths perfectly complementing one another.
The major focus of the all-Mozart programme will be the famous Requiem, featuring local professional soloists in addition to the choirs. The highlight of the first half will be the well-known 20th Piano Concerto performed by local pianist: Angie Allard.
