Choral Society hold gala concert featuring local composer

With summer around the corner Bruton Choral Society are delighted to present a special 25th Anniversary Gala Concert and Celebration of the Royal Wedding, to be held at King’s Bruton on Saturday 19 May at 7.30pm.

The Society are proud of keeping the tradition of choral singing alive: this concert aims to be a celebration of the choir, with an added royal twist. They will be joined by an orchestra to perform Handel’s Coronation Anthem: My Heart is Inditing. Other works will include a piece specially commissioned for the occasion by local composer, Andrew Moore: Song’s Eternity, Rutter’s Birthday Madrigals and an eclectic mix of songs by Scott Joplin from his opera Treemonisha.

The Society welcomes back soprano soloist Catherine Greenwell to perform Handel’s Let the Bright Seraphim and there will also be a Concerto for three trumpets by Telemann. In addition there will be some audience participation!

“It would be wonderful to see all our loyal friends and supporters as well as some new faces at this uplifting celebration of live music in the community,” said the Society’s Caroline Tickner.

Tickets are £10 to include a glass of bubbly from Bruton Pharmacy, Church Bridge Stores, by phoning 01749 812281 or online at Accompanied children free.
