Our MD begins with RLSBC

1 July 2020

Our Musical Director today took up his new appointment as Musical Director of the Royal Leamington Spa Bach Choir. He will work with RLSBC alongside us, and his other choirs with the Huntingdonshire Philharmonic and Wellingborough Singers. We are especially delighted that they have agreed that in the present circumstances where we cannot meet in person to rehearse that they will join with the other choirs in joint virtual Home Choir from September, and to that end are joining in with the last few weeks of our Howells project to get used to these strange Zooming times.

Melanie Forse, Chairman of RLSBC writes:

I am truly excited to be welcoming Lee to work with the Royal Leamington Spa Bach Choir, and I look forward to his plans to perform music from the choir’s earlier directors, as well as embarking on an ambitious programme of choral music, new and old. Lee’s broad knowledge of the repertoire and his experience and enthusiasm will serve to inspire all our members to strive for a very high standard of performance.

At this stage it is difficult to say for sure when Lee’s first concert with RLSBC will take place, but over the next two seasons the choir is planning performances of works including Bach Mass in B minor, Brahms Ein deutsches Requiem, Monteverdi Vespers, an all-Mozart programme including the Coronation Mass and Solemn Vespers, and a candlelit performance of Rachmaninov Vespers. He will be giving an organ recital at the choir’s principal performance venue, All Saints’ Church in Royal Leamington Spa, on Sunday 13 September at 3:00pm, including Smetana Vltava from Má Vlast, Reincken An Wasserflüssen Babylon, and three short works by the late Dr Stanley Vann, founding conductor of the Royal Leamington Spa Bach Choir, and later Director of Music at Peterborough Cathedral.
