Brighter Berkshire Concert with Reading Phoenix Choir – 21st October
Reading Phoenix Choir are delighted to be singing a concert at St Laurence Church, Reading in aid of Brighter Berkshire.
This fantastic charity concert will take place at St Laurence Church; a wonderful twelfth century church building that is a pleasure to sing in and is right in the heart of Reading, next to the Town Hall.
The concert will cover a wide variety of our current repertoire, but is likely to include a selection from Howell’s Requiem and Rachmaninov’s Vespers, through various madrigals and folk songs, to finish with some more ‘popular’ pieces by Queen and David Bowie. There’s always something for everyone!
If you’ve never heard the choir before, then be prepared to be blown away by their quality and love of music-making. They sing predominantly unaccompanied and perform everything entirely from memory, allowing a real connection with the audience.
The Henley Standard has previously said that the‘singing is beautiful and faultless’, while judges from the Choir of the Year described it as a ‘great, warm sound, very precise and well focused’ and ‘full of vitality – I love the richness and verve of the performance’.
Where: St Laurence Church, Friar Street, Reading RG1 1DA
When: Saturday 21st October, 7:30pm
Tickets: £10 | £5 for under 16s
