We had a great 2013, singing Bach, Britten,
Handel and many more. We started off our
Christmas celebrations with a Come &
Sing Messiah on 14th December. It was a fun
filled afternoon of singing, tea, coffee
and cakes ! There were lots of new faces
there who did a splendid job of singing this
well known, yet difficult piece of music.
We hope you all enjoyed it as much as our
members of the choir and will join us again
for our Come & Sing Brahms in May.
Sunday 15th December, we performed our Handel's
Messiah concert at Calke Abbey. Derby Bach
Choir would like to thank the National Trust
and the staff at Calke Abbey for their hospitality.
The Riding School gave us an atmospheric
setting for this moving piece and Calke decked
the hall with boughs of holly for us, with
mulled wine and mincepies to warm us before
we performed. Our soloists and the Helix
Orchestra were sublime, and the audience
joined us in standing to sing the Hallelujah
2014 brings with it more exciting concerts
from Derby Bach Choir. Our first concert
of 2014 is Verdi's Requiem at The Roundhouse,
Derby. This is to be an extravaganza of musical
delight as we join together with other choirs
in the region to bring you this powerful
piece of music. We look forward to seeing
you all on 29th March 2014 at The Roundhouse,
Derby for Verdi's Requiem !
