SHOW GOES ON: Busy year ahead for community choir

 Published on: 16th January 2022   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Northwood choir will be bringing more musical classics to the area soon, from Mendelssohn to Gilbert & Sullivan.

The long-established Northwood Choral Society, a group of around 30 singers led by vocal coach Julie Bale, has existed in some form since 1973, starting as Trinity Music Society before changing its name to this current one in 2008.

The group had a busy 2021, even throughout the ups and downs of the pandemic and now have some even more exciting projects on their way. Firstly, a Saturday matinee performance on February 26 at 2pm, located at Saint John’s United Reformed Church, where they’ll be singing various hits from musicals.

Spring term project Elijah, a famous oratorio by Romantic-era composer Felix Mendelssohn, will be a large-scale collaborative effort with Trinity Orchestra and the Harrow Philharmonic Orchestra, taking place on March 26.

Following that, they’ll be taking on Gilbert and Sullivan’s famous political parody Iolanthe, with a cheese and wine party as well on June 18. Other events to raise money for the choir’s continued operation will be announced through the year.
