Tentatively, and knowing it all may change, we are making exciting plans for the new Season starting September 6th 2021.
Coming up we have:
Monday Sept 6th 7.30pm: Return to rehearsals, d:two, 55 Market Place, Henley on Thames RG9 2AA
Your chance to come back to singing. There are no auditions. Join us for a free, friendly rehearsal and fall in love with choral singing all over again. Tenors and basses especially welcome but we have vacancies in all sections. See Join pages for details and we will see you soon!
Saturday Oct 9th: Brahms Ein Deutsche Requiem Come & Sing Workshop, St Mary’s Henley
A chance for all singers to get together and experience working on this sublime, humane and uplifting work (even the fiendish fugues.) We’ll be inviting singers from Oxon, Bucks, Berks and beyond to join us under the brilliant baton of Peter Asprey and the supreme talents of our HCS and HYC accompanists David Smith and Anita D’Attellis. If you have always wanted to join HCS then what are you waiting for? This will be a great opportunity to try us out in a day of music-making. Score hire available. And there will be cake. Lots of cake. More details and tickets to be announced soon.
Saturday Dec 11th: Christmas Concert, St Mary’s Henley
Both HCS and our brilliant Henley Youth Choirs will come together to get your Christmas off to the most-Christmassy start possible. Carols, seasonal pieces, the opportunity to sing your favourites…we will be joined by the marvellous Onyx Brass described as ‘the classiest brass ensemble in Britain’ whose combination of virtuosity and wit is bound to send you out into the December night with a spring in your step. More details and tickets to be announced.
Saturday Apr 2nd 2022: Mendelssohn Elijah, Great Hall, University of Reading
Save the date now for this performance of one of the most beloved, stirring and dramatic oratorios in the choral repertoire.
