Music for Monarchs

Chelmsford Singers June Concert

Add to my Calendar 25-06-2022 19:30 25-06-2022 21:30 36 Music for Monarchs Chelmsford Singers’ Spring Concert will be on Saturday June 25th at St. Peter Ad Vincula, Coggeshall, CO6 1UD at 7.30pm. Doors will open at 6.45pm. Refreshments will be available before the concert and at the interval.   This concert joins in the national celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with the title Music for Monarchs, performing a number of pieces of music associated with crowned heads.    We will be revisiting some favourite pieces, including Britten’s Choral Dances from Gloriana, Parry’s coronation anthem I was glad, as well as less familiar works including a setting of Psalm 100 by HRH Prince Albert, and a brand-new arrangement of Greensleeves written for this concert by our musical director James Davy. The mixture of music from the 16th century to the 20th is challenging but very rewarding and the concert will also feature pieces for organ and piano, including piano duets written for HM the Queen and her sister Princess Margaret.    Tickets are £15 adult, with under 16s free. They are available from chelmsfordsingers.co.uk, by calling 07876 686611,  or at the door on the night. There is ample on-street parking available near the venue.   Chelmsford Singers, now enjoying their 96th year of existence,  are a choral society with a reputation for producing quality music since 1927, currently numbering around 50 members. James Davy is the Organist and Master of Choristers at Chelmsford Cathedral and has been Musical Director of Chelmsford Singers since 2012. They will be accompanied by Matthew Kelley.   St Peter ad Vincula, Coggeshall DD/MM/YYYY
