Choir at monastery to cel­e­brate 60th sea­son

Macclesfield Express - - TIME TRIP -

THE St Ge­orge’s Singers will cel­e­brate the end of their 60th sea­son with a special con­cert on Sun­day, June 25.

The Poyn­ton group, which will sing Verdi’s Messa da Glo­ria, will head to Gor­ton Monastery for the cel­e­bra­tory per­for­mance, with coaches run­ning from Poyn­ton.

Jean Eger­ton, from the choir, said: “St Ge­orge’s Singers’ 60th an­niver­sary sea­son reaches its thrilling cli­max at Gor­ton Monastery on Sun­day June 25 with a per­for­mance of one of the most dra­matic and best loved of all cho­ral works.

“Verdi in­sisted that the Re­quiem should be per­formed in a large space, prefer­ably a church; the Monastery will be the ideal set­ting to hear and feel the power of this awe-in­spir­ing work.”

The choir will be joined by The Sheffield Cho­rale, Stock­port Sym­phony Or­ches­tra and soloists Irina Ior­dachescu, Joyce Tind­s­ley, Matthew Min­ter and Colin Camp­bell.

Tick­ets cost £18, con­ces­sions £16 and stu­dents £6. Group dis­counts can be ar­ranged.
