Our Summer concert 'A Night at the Opera'
The concert was a great success this year. The choir really enjoyed singing some of Verdi's best loved choruses together with choruses by Handel, Mozart, Rossini and Donizetti. We were very pleased indeed to welcome our guest Soprano Nicola Wydenbach, a graduate of the Royal College of Music, together with our guest Tenor Dominick Felix, who is on a Postgraduate programme at the Guildhall School of Music. They are both outstanding singers who are already making their mark in the opera and oratorio world. We were all very ably supported by our wonderful accompanist, Duncan White, and our Music Director Iain Cooper, who was making his final appearance with Downland. It was very gratifying that his last concert with us should have been so successful, and we wish him well for the future.
Our first concert with our new Music Director will take place on December 9th, the first half of which will feature the Rutter Requiem together with Christmas music in the second half. We will be presenting a Mozart concert next spring on March 17th which will include his ever popular Requiem.
