Grand concert will mark 150 years of singing
Monday, 19th April 2010.
One of Haverhill's longest-established organisations celebrates its 150th birthday this year with a major event next month.
Haverhill Choral Society was founded in 1860 and will be putting on a performance of one of the most popular choral works, Mozartís Requiem, on Saturday, May 15, to mark the anniversary.
The choir will be directed by Jane Wright, with a full orchestra supported by Nigel Brown on the organ, and invited soloists.
Combining these musical talents with over 50 choir members, it promises to be a performance that will be remembered for years to come.
With 150 years of any society comes a wealth of local history - living through historic world events, changes in the local families participating, in surroundings and in technology.
To mark this passage of time Haverhill Choral Society will also be providing a display in Haverhill Arts Centre which is open to the public and free of charge.
The concert itself takes place in the Old Independent Church, Hamlet Road, starting at 7.30pm. As usual, the £8 admission price includes a buffet and tea or coffee, following the performance.
Anyone interested in joining the choir is welcome at attend its new rehearsal venuerehearsal, Samuel Ward Arts and Technology College Music Department, on Mondays starting at 7.25pm. No audition is necessary, and all past or curious singers are welcome.
