Brandenburg Choral Festival of London presents a Spring Festival

Let us bring you a little bit of springtime cheer!

This time last year we were preparing to run a series of concerts at
St Bartholomew the Great called ‘A Spring Bouquet’. We still can’t
welcome you into Great St Bart’s – but we refuse to let Covid defeat
us a second time, so we’re moving the concert online in the same
format as the hugely popular concerts in December 2020.

Thursday 8th April, 2pm and 5pm
with the Brandenburg Camino Choir and the Choir of St Bartholomew the Great

Tickets are £10 – Sign up here

The pre-recorded musical content will include excerpts from Vivaldi
Gloria (with the Brandenburg Baroque Soloists), Fauré Requiem, O
Magnum Mysterium by Morten Lauridsen and a stunning vocal arrangement of Albinoni Adagio, all performed by the Brandenburg Camino Choir.
We will additionally present a number of more intimate performances
by the superb professional choir of St Bartholomew the Great.
The whole programme will have a refreshing flavour of Spring and be
interspersed with readings providing a resonance of hope as Spring
approaches.
Delivery will be via Zoom (no technical knowledge required – just
click on the link provided). We’ll also supply a pdf programme to be
printed at home, together with tips to enhance the quality of audio
delivery in the home.
We hope to see you there!
