Derry International Choral Competition: Preview recital

7:30 pm, Mon 9 October 2023

St James' Islington

Short, informal, free recital and with wine included. Please reserve your place via the link

The recital will be a preview and workshop of our programme for the Derry International Choral Festival, in which we are competing on the 21st/22nd October. The evening will even incorporate an opportunity to feed back to the choir in the break and hear your suggestions put into practice afterwards!

In thanks to Father John Burniston who is retiring as Vicar of St James’ Islington we will close the concert with a dedication to him – and to celebrate the recently renovated organ – Like as the Hart by Howells.

NB – Doors open at 7pm for a casual start around 7:30pm
