Addison Chamber Choir Seeking New Members

Addison Chamber Choir

The Addison Chamber Choir will be holding auditions for all voices in early September. They are particularly hoping to hear from tenors and basses but happy to be contacted by all experienced singers.

Highlights for the choir in the past year include the London premiere of 'Eventide' by Patrick Hawes (with the renowned Tiffin School Choir & the Brandenburg Sinfonia); singing in the award-winning 'Minimalism Unwrapped' Festival at King's Place with Gavin Bryars and his Ensemble ; the Mozart 'Requiem' and a recent work by Toby Young at St Martin-in-the-Fields, and joining the Addison Oratorio Choir and East London Brass to celebrate the 90th birthday of Joseph Horovitz, performing his epic Oratorio 'Samson' at the Cadogan Hall.

Plans for 2016/17 include the Vivaldi 'Gloria' at St Martin-in-the-Fields ; the London premiere of the choral version of Elgar's 'Sea Pictures', and much more.

Email or call 07531 447960 to arrange an audition.

The first full rehearsal of the autumn term takes place on Wednesday 14 September from 7.30-9.30pm at the Malinova Room, 2nd Floor, Polish Centre, 238 King Street, W6 0RF and rehearsals continue until 23 November. The termly concert will take place on Saturday 26 November at St Peter's Church, Acton Green at 7.30pm.
