The Handful Chamber Choir

Programme Note

With 2021 (what a year!) drawing to a close, join The Handful in a contemplative yet joyful evening as the choir weaves its way through a rich tapestry of music reflecting on what has passed and giving thanks for what we have, finishing with a few jolly drinking songs to see us into the festive season!

As part of the choir's commitment to exploring and supporting new music the programme inlcudes UK premieres from two hugely talented young composers, Sydney Guillaume and J. Michael Saunders.
