Banbury Choral Society begins its autumn season with an exciting and varied programme of British music tomorrow (Friday) in the beautiful surroundings of the town’s St Mary’s Church.
The choir will be led by their dynamic musical director, Julian Harris, and will be accompanied by Charles Matthews on organ for the show which begins at 7.30pm.
The soloists will be Katy Crompton (soprano); Lorna Perry (alto); Martin Quinn (tenor) and Edward Grint (bass). The concert features choral and solo works by some of Britain’s best-loved composers from the 17th through to the 20th centuries and in this, the 60th anniversary year of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, many are associated with coronations.
Works include pieces by Handel, Vaughan Williams, Henry Purcell and Elgar.
Tickets can be purchased from One Man Band in White Lion Walk, Banbury Tourist Information Centre or from www.madeincherwell.org/apps/webstore and will be sold on the door subject to availability.
