Season Overview

RVW150 - two performances of Vaughan Williams' majestic A Sea Symphony, straddling the 150th anniversary of his birth, in a programme that also includes his A London Symphony.

We celebrated Christmas with a "Christmas Sparkler" in Reigate - Messiah Christmas music, plus trumpet and vocal jewels.

Our concert in March 2023 features Gabriel Fauré's Requiem and Sunrise Mass by the Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo, and our Summer Concert in July includes another French requiem setting, by Duruflé, and Poulenc's Gloria.

We are hosting two open singing days, working on Verdi and Mozart Requiems, in November and February respectively, and all singers will also be welcome at two open repertoire rehearsals on Haydn's Nelson Mass and Mozart's Mass in C-minor.
