Last night’s concert of Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil at St Albans Cathedral was a very special occasion for us – our first serious concert in two years, set against the awful background of the current conflict. This is a performance that will linger in the memory for a long time. The retiring collection raised just over £1000 for British-Ukrainian Aid – thank you for your generosity towards this important cause.
Our next concert will be Brahms Requiem in St Nicholas Church, Harpenden – postponed from last year due to Covid. This is on 21 May – tickets to go on sale shortly.
Tickets are now on sale for our next concert, which is only a few weeks away – Saturday 12 March – in the Lady Chapel of St Albans Abbey. We are working hard on our Church-Slavonic pronunciation… Many thanks to Frank Althaus of The Russian Language Centre for coming to Harpenden to coach us.
We are so pleased to have been able to perform our first concert in two years on Thursday night. Thank you to the Eric Morecambe Centre for hosting us and our lovely audience for their unwavering support.
Between the MerriLea Digital Advent Calendar and raffle sales at the concert we have raised over £1000 for the vital work of the Harpenden Trust. Thank you for your generosity.
We are now looking forward to our next concert in St. Albans Abbey in March – Rachmaninov Vespers.
