OXSHOTT CHORAL SOCIETY
    A Constituent Choir of the Leith Hill Musical Festival
 

 

NEXT OXSHOTT REHEARSAL . . . . .
. . . Wednesday February 10th - Ladies 7.30pm; Men 8pm #

Our next concert in Oxshott .....
. . . was our Christmas concert, on Saturday December 12th, at St. Andrew's Church, KT22 0LE. The programme included Mozart's Solemn Vespers, and seasonal carols. Our nominated charity was The Marfan Trust, a charity that promotes awareness of Marfan Syndrome and raises money for research into the causes and into effective treatments for the various symptoms, and we raised £1002 to help their work.


The 2015 Leith Hill Musical Festival.....
. . . began with a performance of Handel's Messiah, on Sunday March 8th, followed by the Youth Choir Day on Saturday March 14th. The main Festival took place on April 9th - 11th, with Oxshott's division competing on Friday 10th. The Main Chorus works were Mendelssohn's Hymn of Praise, and Dances of Time, a piece by Bob Chilcott commissioned by the Leith Hill Musical Festival to celebrate Brian Kay's 20 years as Festival conductor.

The 2016 Leith Hill Musical Festival.....
. . . will be Brian Kay's last as conductor. The celebrated Mr. Kay will no longer educate and enthuse us from Vaughan Williams' own conducting desk, nor lead us through the Bach Passions with his erudition and wit. Nor ridicule the tenors at combined rehearsals.
The 2014 Tour to Tuscany.....
. . . was over in a flash. No-one arrested though. A touring party from the choir travelled to Montecatini Terme in Tuscany, and gave two free concerts, one in the church of Santa Maria dei Ricci in the heart of Florence, or Firenze as the locals insist on calling it for some inexplicable reason, and one in the Chiesa di Sant’Agostino in San Gimignano. The programme, which was the same for each concert, consisted of Faure’s Requiem and smaller works including Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium and Elgar’s Ave Maria, and Handel favourites Zaphod the Priest and the Hallelujah chorus.
