    Description: 50th Anniversary Concert 'Viva La Musica'

    Please join us for a summer evening of choral music and celebration in the beautiful setting of St Wilfrid’s Church.

    As we continue our 50th anniversary year of musical celebrations we are thrilled to invite you to join us for our choral concert ‘Viva la Musica’ and afterwards to a buffet reception where there will be a chance to meet and celebrate with past and present Musical Directors and choir members.

    The one hour programme which is also Alex Kyle’s final concert with Vocalis contains beautiful music by Gerald Finzi, Clara Schumann and Eric Whitacre including pieces for choir and percussion. We will also be performing the world premiere of ‘When music sounds’ commissioned by Vocalis for this event and composed by Anthony Gray, local musician and Musical Director and organist at St Wilfrid’s Church. Vocalis will be accompanied by Anthony on the organ and piano and by percussionist Taneli Clarke.

    In addition we are encouraging former choir members to join us on stage for an exciting joint performance of Parry’s ‘I was Glad’! If you are a former member and haven't already received an invite for this, do please get in touch!

    We would encourage audience members to buy tickets online, see above, by 6th June to help with our catering.
