TAMESIS Chamber Choir will mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice with a special concert on Sunday.
Starting at 4pm and taking place at Queen Anne’s School in Caversham, the programme features music and readings based on the theme of remembrance.
The pieces are: Eleanor Daley’s Requiem, Howells’ Take him earth for cherishing, Lang’s The Kontakion, Guest’s For the fallen, Vaughan Williams’ Valiant for Truth, Todd’s For Peace, Parry’s Crossing the bar, Whitacre’s Nox aurumque, Tavener’s Exhortation and Kohima and Mealor’s Peace.
The choir are conducted by Louise Rapple and will be accompanied by Judith Creighton on the piano.
Tickets cost £12, £10 for concessions and can be ordered by logging on to www.tames.is. THE SHINFIELD Players will be presenting a highly original take on Macbeth next week.
The group will be welcoming The
Farndale Avenue Townswomen’s Guild
Dramatic Society for a play within a play as they tackle Macbeth.
It’s very much a play that goes wrong: a series of hilarious mistakes makes this a delightful face from beginning to end.
The show is performed at its Whitley
Wood Lane theatre from Wednesday, November 14 through to Saturday, November 17.
Curtain up is at 7.45pm and tickets cost £12, £11 for concessions and £6 for children.
