|Hogarth Singers Perform Brahms' Requiem|
Local choir to sing at St. Michael's Church Elmwood Road
Hogarth Singers will perform Brahms' Requiem on Saturday 18th November at St Michaels Church, Sutton Court, Elmwood Road, starting at 7.30 p.m.
Hogarth Singers is a small friendly choir, based nomally at St Michael and All Angels, Bedford Park, with rehearsals in the Arts Educational Schools. The choir was formed about 20 years ago, and has built an enthusiastic group of members and followers.
Under their Musical Director David Bray, the group sings a range of choral music, from Baroque to contemporary, and performs 4-5 concerts each year. The size of the choir, currently around 50, allows it great flexibility in choice of repertoire. Whilst the Autumn Concert features a large choral work in Brahms Requiem, the Spring Concert in contrast, will feature Bach's Jesu Meine Freude, and Schutz Seven last Words from the Cross.
David Bray has directed the Singers since 2001. He studied composition, piano, organ and conducting at the Royal College of Music. Now Head of Publishing at music publishers Boosey & Hawkes, he also specialises in vocal coaching, and has a considerable reputation for choral training, working regularly with choirs and vocal soloists.
Tickets for Hogarth Singers Concert will be available on the door at £10 (Concessions £6). For more information about the concert or the choir, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.hogarthsingers.org . New members are most welcome!"
