The Marches Choir Present an evening of Coronation Rejoicing!
On Sunday 4th June 2023, the Marches Choir of Bishops Castle will join forces with the More Singers of Church Stretton to present ‘Coronation Rejoicing!’, a celebration of the coronation of King Charles III, in the splendid regal venue of the Regency-style ballroom at Walcot Hall, Lydbury North.
The concert will feature a variety of celebratory and high-spirited music, including a selection of Handel's Coronation Anthems, from Zadok the Priest, with its famous musical setting of long live the king, to the uplifting anthem The King Shall Rejoice. The choir will also perform Regina Coeli, Mozart's wonderfully inspiring and celebratory motet, as well as Purcell's Celebrate this Festival, another very appropriate anthem. The concert will include a variety of solos, duets and much more – an evening not to be missed!
The concert will start at 7.30pm, and tickets, £15 (children and students free), are available by calling 01588 650315 or online via www.ticketsource.co.uk, and can also be purchased from choir members or on the night at the venue.
