Choral Festival The Hague June 10th 2017

This year the Choral Festival was hosted by the Anglican Church of St. John & St. Philip The Hague and it took place on June 10th 2017. Our conductor for the day was Lee Dunleavy and our organist was Christina Edelen.

Over 80 singers turned up and we all had a marvellous singing experience that day. To give an impression of the day here are some photos taken by Fiona Middelkoop during the event.

Announcing a new anthem

Saturday May 7th ECS had our second rehearsal for our week in York. We went through quite a lot of music, some of it well known, some of it new to ECS singers. One particular piece was so new we actually gave it the first sing-through ever at yesterdays rehearsal!

The piece, ‘Our last awakening’, was written by well known singer, choral director and composer Bill Ives, who writes music under the name Grayston Ives.

We will be performing this piece in York and it will be a world premiere, attended D.V. by both the commissioner and the composer. So we will be doing some more rehearsing on it…

If you would like to know more about the piece, read Penny Granger’s story on this commission.
