50th Anniversary Concert – Part 1

Wilmslow URC on Saturday 2nd April at 7.30pm

Our Conductor, Cliff Crewe has trawled back through 50 years of concert programmes to choose the essence of the choir’s repertoire during that time.

The first half will contain favourite extracts from the ‘classical’ repertoire including ‘Zadok the Priest’, items from both Mozart’s and Faure’s Requiems as well as Psalm 23 from ‘The Vicar of Dibley’ and other pieces. The lighter second half will have songs from the Great American Songbook, spirituals, a madrigal, folk songs including the ‘Londonderry Air’ as well as pieces composed especially for the Singers. The finale ‘When the Saints go marching in’ will give our audience a chance to let rip with the well-known melody.

Our brilliant accompanist Lauren Turner and organist Richard Brocklehurst will show off their skills too with solos to make up a glorious evening of popular and timeless music.

To support the ongoing crisis in Ukraine the proceeds of the raffle and any additional donations will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Appeal.

Refreshments will be served in the interval.
