    Dance and Sing | Amici Chamber Choir
    Alexander Thomas, Amici Chamber Choir, Matthew Long, Paul Ayres, Paul Jeanes
    Pinner Parish Church Pinner HA5 3AA
    United Kingdom

    We are delighted to return to Pinner Parish Church for our spring 2018 concert. We hope our varied programme is sufficiently tempting for you to come along on Saturday evening. Of particular interest, perhaps, are Britten's Choral Dances from his opera, Gloriana. It is more common for amateur choirs to perform the a cappella version, but our musical director has set us the challenge of performing the version that includes a tenor soloist and harp accompaniment.

    Pinner is an interesting place to visit, so why not spend the afternoon browsing the shops or enjoying a walk in Pinner Memorial Park, then have something to eat at one of the many restaurants in the high street before coming to the concert.

    We hope to see you there.

    JS Bach's Mass in B minor | English Baroque Choir
    David Hurley, English Baroque Choir, Flora Macdonald, Jeremy Jackman, Jonathan Howard, Lina Dambrauskaite, Maximilian Lawrie, Musica Poetica
    St John's Smith Square London SW1P 3HA
    United Kingdom

    JS Bach's Mass in B minor was one of his last works and was not collated in full (or named as such) until after his death. He composed the Sanctus in 1724, revised it and added the Kyrie and Gloria in 1733, followed by the Credo and last movements in his final years. Over the centuries since, the overall work has been performed on many special occasions and is widely lauded as one the greatest choral compositions ever.

    This is a special anniversary for us; please come along to help us celebrate our roots and ongoing growth. The English Baroque Choir was formed in 1978 and has become one of London's finest amateur choirs, with a reputation for musicality, imaginative programming and choral enthusiasm. From Allegri to Whitacre, from intimate venues to the Royal Albert Hall, we have rejoiced in medieval to modern, a cappella to oratorio, and even Christmas rock! this concert, in the baroque gem of St John's Smith Square, is a perfect celebration and promises to be an exquisite and emotional evening.

    Mass in B minor
    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

    Half Six Fix is a short, one-hour concert from the LSO, and a new way to experience great classical music. For this performance LSO Principal Guest Conductor François-Xavier Roth immerses you in the world of Debussy and Stravinsky, from a fairytale landscape inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's The Nightingale, to the eternal odyssey of the ocean in La mer – so vivid that you can almost smell sea salt and see the crests of the waves.

    To bring you closer to the action, we’ve got screens to showcase the performers up-close, you can access digital programme notes through your Android or Apple device, and François-Xavier Roth will give you an introduction to the music from the stage. Grab a drink, take your seat and enjoy the concert!

    Classic Gershwin - live at Zédel
    Sue Porrett, Viv MacLean
    Crazy Coqs, Brasserie Zédel, Soho London W1F 7ED
    United Kingdom

    The vibrant music of George Gershwin is interwoven with his fascinating life story from birth in the colourful, teeming New York of 1898 to his tragically early death in 1937.

    With prize-winning pianist and famed Gershwin interpreter, Viv McLean, and National Theatre and TV actress Susan Porrett narrating, this production presents an intriguing, eclectic mix of Gershwin's music from the much-loved Rhapsody in Blue, I got rhythm Variations and Swanee to the rarely-played classical preludes.
