    The Choral Society is delighted to present its 35th annual concert with an exciting programme of music by Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart.

    The concert will be conducted by our musical director Andrew Nunn and we will be joined by 4 excellent soloists and the symphony orchestra from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The choir will perform Haydn Te Deum in C and Beethoven Mass in C with soprano soloist. An added attraction in recent programmes has been the inclusion of an orchestral item performed by the very talented Symphony Orchestra of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and this year they will perform a short Mozart symphony (No 35 Haffner).

    This should be a wonderful evening of music in the beautiful setting and acoustic of Coats Memorial Church and we hope that you will join us.

    In aid of the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity - all profits from this concert will be donated to this great and worthy cause.

    Colla Voce Singers presents the first concert of 2015, under the direction of its Musical Director, Aidan Coburn. In the wonderful surrounding of Christ Church Hampstead, the choir will perform Handel's Dixit Dominus, with other works by the composer, as well as Monteverdi and Purcell.

    Now in its 10th year, critically acclaimed London chamber choir Colla Voce Singers was founded in 2005 by a talented group of recently-graduated choral scholars and conductor Lee Ward. The choir has rapidly grown a national reputation for 'dynamic and passionate' performances, including those for audiences such as TRH Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Tony Blair and Pope Benedict, in addition to working for such great conductors as James MacMillan and orchestras such as the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. International engagements have taken the choir to Latvia, Poland, France and Italy. The choir takes pride in the diversity of its repertoire, from Bach to contemporary works of composers such as Roxanna Panufnik, whose ‘Love Abide’ they recorded for Warner Classics.
