Newbury Spring Festival Chorus: 25th Anniversary Concert

Friday 17th May 2024, St Nicolas Church

Full Price £50 / £35 / £25 / Under-30s FREE (Including booking fees)

The Newbury Spring Festival Chorus celebrate their 25th anniversary in this special concert with Southbank Sinfonia and some of the leading soloists of their generation.

Hilary Cronin made a remarkable Festival debut when she appeared in Kintbury Church in 2023, before receiving a standing ovation at Carnegie Hall as soprano soloist in the Monteverdi Choir’s recent USA tour. Tonight she sings two of Handel’s most dazzling virtuoso arias for soprano and trumpet. Alex Ashworth then joins the Festival Chorus for Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs which culminate in the famous hymn tune Let all the world in every corner sing.

This special 25th Anniversary Concert, conducted by Festival Chorus Master Tom Primrose, culminates in a performance of one of the most popular works for chorus and orchestra, Haydn’s Nelson Mass, full of dazzling solos and rousing choruses.
