Two popular yet contrasting choral treats await the audience at Bexhill Choral Society’s concert on Saturday May 7, 7.30pm at St Augustine’s Church, off Cooden Drive, in Bexhill.

The concert begins with Puccini’s Messa di Gloria. This operatic yet ecclesiastical work is a forerunner of his ever popular operas and sheer joy to sing and listen to. The second half of the concert is Poulenc’s Gloria. This work strikes a glorious balance between the exuberance and solemnity of Church music, with many jazzy overtones.

BCS is delighted to welcome back three popular soloists well-known to Bexhill audiences: Sophie Pullen, Gary Marriott and Barnaby Beer.

The performance, as always, is conducted by Kenneth Roberts, BCS’s Director of Music, with the Sussex Concert Orchestra.

Tickets, £12, available from Second Spin, Sackville Road, Bexhill, choir members, on the door, or 01424 213352.
