Bexhill Choral Society are offering their first concert since 2019
They will take the stage at St Barnabas Church, Sea Road, Bexhill, TN40 1JG on Saturday, October 16 at 7.30pm.
Secretary Jenny Meteyard said they were delighted to be back rehearsing and performing one of the most popular choral works, Fauré’s Requiem, with their director of music, Kenneth Roberts, and the Sussex Concert Orchestra.
“The members were previously working hard via Zoom, with Kenneth Roberts directing from his piano at home, but have been rehearsing in person since summer.
“The first half of the concert comprises Vivaldi’s brilliantly buoyant Credo. The orchestra then perform Mozart’s celebratory Divertimento K.251. Corrette’s Laudate Dominum, a reworking of Vivaldi’s Spring, full of joyous choral singing, completes the first half. The second half features Fauré’s much-loved Requiem. BCS is delighted to welcome back popular local soloists: Caroline Charnock, Peter Grevatt and Gary Marriott.”
