This Remembrance-themed concert marks the centenary of the Armistice, and forms part of a series of events marking Epworth Choir’s 60th anniversary year. The 200+ combined voices of Epworth Choir and Islington Choral Society are joined by the world-class Philharmonia Orchestra and a truly stellar line-up of vocal soloists. Internationally-acclaimed violinist Chloë Hanslip completes the line-up.
The first half of the programme features Barber’s breathtaking Adagio for Strings, a solo performance by Chloë Hanslip, and the world premiere of a specially-commissioned orchestration of David Bednall’s powerful Nunc Dimittis. The second half of the programme culminates with the combined vocal and instrumental forces in what promises to be a truly uplifting performance of Mozart’s powerful Requiem.
All performed within the inspiring surroundings of the newly-refurbished Guildford Cathedral, the concert is supporting SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity. As Britain’s oldest military charity, their work is dedicated to helping servicemen and women, veterans and their families who are in need
