Prestbury Choral Society hit all the right notes with concert
PRESTBURY Choral Society are celebrating a successful Easter concert, Bach’s St John Passion, at St Bartholomew’s Church in Wilmslow.
Led by musical director Simon Mercer, the choir’s performance incorporated six soloists.
Cynthia Crewe, choir member, praised the ‘almost operatic interplay between the six excellent soloists’. She said: “The rousing applause from the packed house at the end of the evening said it all.”
The choir is now preparing for its end of season summer concert, ‘a lighter affair’.
The audience will be treated to a programme of four-part songs by Schubert, English Art songs, madrigals, traditional songs, and sacred music, interspersed with flute and piano.
The concert takes place on Saturday June 6 at 4pm at Prestbury Village Hall, Macclesfield Road.
Tickets are priced at £10, £9 concessions and are available on the door or in advance via prestburychoral.org or by phoning 01625 584337.
