A new year, a new term for Atherstone Choral Society. Rehearsals recommence on Monday 6th January, 7.30pm at Racemeadow School Atherstone when we will be learning Dvorak’s Stabat Mater for our next concert on 4th April. New singers are warmly welcomed but please contact our Membership Secretary beforehand to ensure a prepared welcome! email@example.com
Atherstone Choral Society will be in attendance at the Dickens event on Saturday 30th November. Come along and join us at St Mary’s Church in the Market Square from 3.30pm and hear us singing some Christmas Carols.
A packed house (or church) showed their enthusiasm for our performance of The Creation on Saturday night . The soloists and Beauchamp Sinfonietta also did us proud and being seated on tiered staging all helped to make it a night to remember.
Next – Christmas concert 15th December!! Back to rehearsals!
Besides celebrating our 45th anniversary this year, we are also celebrating the privilege of having had Bob Ramskill as our accompanist for the last 25 years. Our gift to him was an original painting of Adelstrop, as Bob has composed music for us to sing with the words of Edward Thomas’ poem Adelstrop. Thank you, Bob!
Fancy joining us to sing Haydn’s Creation?
We are looking for singers of all types – SATB. We start rehearsals at 7.30pm on Monday 2nd September 2019 at Racemeadow Primary Academy, Ratcliffe Road, Atherstone with the performance on Saturday 9th November at St Nicolas Church Nuneaton.
Just come along on the night and give us a try. We offer a ‘buddy’ system so that you quickly get to know other members and what we’re all about.
looking forward to seeing you.
2019 is the 45th anniversary of Atherstone Choral Society, and is also the 25th anniversary of Bob Ramskill joining us as our accompanist. A number of events are planned for the year so keep an eye on our Facebook page and the website for details.
