On Saturday 13 June, Solihull Chandos Choir can be found performing at The Bushell Hall, Solihull School. The choir will be performing Mozart Requiem and Vesperae Solennes de Confessore.
Mozart’s Requiem is a perennial favourite with performers and audiences alike. From the drama of the Dies Irae (Day of Wrath) to the gentle lyricism of the Benedictus, a vast range of emotions is revealed.
The word 'Solemn' in the title of the Vesperae Solennes de Confessore refers to the importance of the service for which they were composed, not the music, which is anything but solemn.
Solihull Chandos Choir are delighted to welcome soloists; Sara Whichelow (soprano), who played Princess Ida in their concert performance of Gilbert & Sullivan’s operetta, Mitesh Khatri (tenor) who appeared in Puccini’s Messa di Gloria with the choir last year and Themba Mvula (bass) who last performed with the group in Messiah in 2013. The choir also welcomes Victoria Jess as their mezzo. Victoria is a graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music, and made her professional debut with Birmingham Opera Company under the direction of Graham Vick in the world premiere of Jonathan Dove's Life is a Dream.
Tickets are just £15 and the concert takes place at The Bushell Hall, Solihull School (see map below) on Saturday 13 June at 7.30pm. For more information and to book tickets click here.
