The 2019-20 new season for Liverpool Welsh Choral is about to begin with rehearsals starting for the choir next week. We are still buoyed up by our fantastic experience at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod in July. Singing with another choir (the London Welsh Chorale) was brilliant and it is always exciting working under a different conductor. It was a glorious evening too, and with the backdrop of the Berwyn mountains, an idyllic venue. Thank you to anyone who was there to support us.
Now onto pastures new. We start the season with “Great Baroque Choral Classics”  a concert of Baroque music in All Hallows Church, Greenhill Road, Allerton, L18 6JJ on Saturday 19th October 2019 at 7.30pm. You will be able to hear some fantastic music from composers of the period: Te Deum by Purcell, some items from Vivaldi’s Gloria, excerpts from Bach’s B Minor Mass, parts of Handel’s Messiah and some individual items too – a packed programme indeed!
All conducted by Keith Orrell and accompanied by Stephen Hargreaves. All unreserved tickets are £14  from Mavis on 0151 652 6374, or from Ticketmaster –
Some advance notice about our Christmas concert – Aled Jones will be our presenter this year, at the Philharmonic Hall for “A Welsh Choral Christmas” on Monday 16th December at 7.30pm. Put it in your diary now!
In 2020 we will be putting on the Messiah as a whole, with a Baroque orchestra, at St Faith’s Church Crosby on Saturday May 2nd.
Our ‘piece de resistance’ will be performing Mahler’s Symphony No 8, on Saturday June 20th at – wait for it – the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester! We are very excited about this opportunity to sing there by invitation, with a choir from Sheffield and the Wrexham Symphony Orchestra. It will be a large choir for such a prestigious piece and fabulous venue. We hope to have lots of our faithful supporters there. Tickets for this concert are from the Bridgewater Hall on 0161 907 9000
Our new season’s prospectus is not quite ready for emailing out to you – hopefully it won’t be long.
We look forward to seeing many of you at our concerts this season.
Happy concert-going!
