This organisation does big sings in venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and organises holidays to do fairly big sings elsewhere. Choir members have been on them and vouch for their quality. TRBC fliers are usually available to pick up at choir too.
Our next concert on Saturday 4th May is part of Richmond MayFest 2024 and features contrasting works composed a hundred years apart. Verdi, a master of opera, returned to a liturgical text for his final composition Four Sacred Pieces. The influences of Palestrina who he much admired, can be heard throughout. John Rutter took seven well known spirituals, usually solo works in concert, setting them for chorus, solo and ‘orchestra’. It is both joyful and moving. We look forward to seeing you at St Mary's Church, Richmond.
