Production news


We very much regret that in the current circumstances we had to postpone our production of Acis + Galatea. We shall continue rehearsals just as soon as it is safe to do so, and reschedule the tour performances – if posssible in May/ June 2021.

We continue planning for our next major production, and look forward to announcing our plans for season 2021 – 2022 here in due course.

Because we are a chorus based company we shall not be be planning small scale performances with one or two soloists and no chorus!

We congratulate our Music Director Toby Purser on his appointment to the newly created post of Head of Conducting at the Royal College of Music.
