Chipperfield Choral Society Spring Concert - Elgar and Mozart
At our Spring Concert we will be performing The Music Makers by Elgar and the Vespers by Mozart. The Music Makers is a setting of a poem by Alfred O'Shaughnessy for contralto solo, chorus and orchestra. The work contains many lovely musical quotations from Elgar's earlier works, particularly Enigma Variations, Dream of Gerontius, Sea Pictures, both Symphonies and the Violin Concerto. The Mozart Vespers showcases the bright and shining music of the Austrian Baroque and included the gorgeous Laudate Dominum for soprano and chorus, a work beautiful enough for a place in any of his operas but somehow breathing a spiritual air which has made it such a well loved Mozart piece. There is an impressive line up of soloists including Chipperfield's Rosemary Clifford, the first recipient of the society's Young Singers Scheme, singing mezzo soprano.
Performance starts 7.30pm. Tickets £15 (£5 if under age 17) are available via members of the choir or 01923 400520 (you may need to leave a message)
