This week saw the last of three EAC lockdown concerts, for members, family and friends, to end the Chorale’s 2019/20 season. The concert included an eclectic mix of music such as Richard Rodney Bennett’s “Divertimento for Two Pianos” and John Williams’ “Cavatina”, and poetry and readings, some of which were self-authored. A particular highlight was EAC accompanist Jonathan Lilley’s stunning rendition of Vierne’s ‘Naïades’, beamed in from the organ at Waltham Abbey, where he is Director of Music. The chorale also had their final opportunity to sing ‘together’ this season, with Zoom renditions of Parry’s “I was Glad” and Handel’s “Zadok the Priest”.
Over 30 EAC members and associates have taken part in the three lockdown concerts, bringing a wealth of musical and other talents into the limelight!
EAC has continued to rehearse throughout lockdown, polishing up various works ready for next season, which we remain optimistic will go ahead as planned.
