As part of the Mole Valley Arts Festival, we welcome everyone interested in choral singing to our popular “Come & Sing” open rehearsal on 30th September at the Peace Memorial Hall – singing Vivaldi’s Gloria.
On November 2nd, at St Martins Church Epsom, we will perform baroque music: the majestic Zadok the Priest, written for George II’s Coronation by Handel; Vivaldi’s spectacular Gloria, a mirror of Venice’s eighteenth century zenith; and Hummel’s Mass in B flat, completing a tour through masters of baroque.
At Christmas, we will join everyone in Ashtead on 21st December for “Carols at Christmas” in the Peace Memorial Hall. Join us, and sing along with your favourite Christmas Carols for a melodious start to the festive season.
On March 28th 2020, we are performing Mendelson’s superb oratorio “Elijah”. For those who have followed Ashtead Choral over the years, this marks the return of Ashtead Choral to the Dorking Halls.
At the end of May, we will be on tour in Normandy – and then for the summer concert on 20th June 2020 we round off the year with a burst of French music from Ravel, Faure, & Debussy, at St George’s Church in Barnett Wood Lane. This is music from our Normandy tour.
