Last August our choir ECS were privileged to perform the World (UK) and Netherlands premieres of a new piece – Our Last Awakenings by Grayston Ives, commissioned specially for ECS by member Penny – at York Minster and the St Bavo Kerk Haarlem, respectively.
Most of us probably thought that this would be enough excitement for a while, but we are excited to announce the forthcoming premiere of a new piece by Stevie Wishart at our annual Choral festival. See below for more details about the event.
We are heading for another premiere, this time in Paris in November – it never rains but it pours!
We have updated our event listing for this year’s RSCM NW Europe and Arch-deaconary of North West Europe Choral Festival, this year to be held in Brussels.
If you are interested in attending and are a member of an affiliated choir, then your Choir Director or other RSCM contact already has all the information that you need. Failing that, interested singers can contact us directly!
ECS members should look out for an email announcing our singing weekend at Kasteel De Berckt, in early April. To be led by well-known UK choral director Gordon Appleton, this weekend promises to be chock-full of great music and singing!
A small number of places are still available – interested singers can contact us.
