Annual Concert, Reading Concert Hall

Come and join us for our Annual Concert…

We are delighted to be back at Reading Concert Hall for our 2018 Annual Concert.

As well as our usual wide variety of repertoire, the highlight of the concert will be the fantastic Gloria by John Rutter, when choir will be accompanied by the Phoenix Brass Ensemble.

If you’ve never heard the choir before, then be prepared to be blown away by our quality and love of music-making. We sing predominantly unaccompanied and perform everything entirely from memory, allowing a real connection with the audience.

The Henley Standard has previously said that our ‘singing is beautiful and faultless’, while judges from the Choir of the Year described it as a ‘great, warm sound, very precise and well focused’ and ‘full of vitality – I love the richness and verve of the performance’.
