The Barnby Choir

75th anniversary celebrations

Our 2021/22 season will celebrate the Barnby Choir’s 75th anniversary, and we are delighted to announce a programme of special concerts, in which we will be accompanied by the talented musicians of Musica Nova.

 

Specific dates will be confirmed in due course. Please note that all details are subject to review in line with government advice during the coronavirus pandemic, and check back regularly for updates.

 

In December, 2021, we will perform Vivaldi’s Gloria and a variety of Christmas carols, old and new, at the United Reformed Church, Wilmslow.

 

In March, 2022, in a special anniversary concert at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, the programme will feature Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor.

 

In May, 2022, at St Michael’s Church in Bramhall, Haydn’s Creation will be the featured work, linking with the first concert by the Barnby Choir in September 1945, when two movements were performed.

 

As a unique feature of the season, each concert will commence with the anthem, Let the Music Sound, especially composed by our conductor Lloyd Buck for this milestone anniversary.

 

We are greatly looking forward to the celebrations. Come and join us – as a singer or as audience! Full booking details will be published later.
