2016 : Verdi, Rutter, Rossini

As our preparations for the final concert in our season of Masses of Masses (Saturday 5 December) - a programme of Haydn Masses following our earlier exploration of Masses by Bach and Mozart - continues, our programme for 2016 has been revealed!

Rutter leading the 2012 day

On Saturday 27 February 2016 the internationally acclaimed composer and conductor John Rutter CBE returns to Northampton to lead a wonderful singing day, including his new large-scale work "The Gift of Life: Six Canticles of Creation". More information on this day, to which all are welcome (though with over 200 singers are already signed up, we suggest you book NOW to avoid disappointment!) may be found here.

Gioachino Rossini

The popularity of our Masses of Masses theme both amongst the choir and our audiences, have led us to present another themed selection of concerts, Viva l'Italia!, beginning on Saturday 19 March 2016 with Verdi's Requiem and concluding on Saturday 9 July 2016 with Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle. The Verdi will be performed with orchestra and four stellar soloists, and the Rossini in its original conception with four soloists and the accompaniment of grand piano and harmonium. We are delighted to announce that Northampton-born international concert pianist, broadcaster, and composer, David Owen Norris will be our star pianist! You can watch extracts of Verdi and Rossini at the bottom of the page.

On Sunday 27 November 2016 the choir will be performing a French programme (exact details are under wraps, but it will be very exciting) with the RPO at the Royal and Derngate.

The year will conclude with our ever-popular Carols for All! concert, returning to its former venue of St Matthew's Church, Northampton, on Saturday 10 December 2016.

Full information about all these concerts, including booking information, will be available later in 2015 ... in the meantime - book the dates in your diary NOW!
