I do hope that you have enjoyed and continue to enjoy a wonderful summer. We have had a very interesting time in France sheltering from the relentless sunshine and praying for rain…to date none has arrived. I very much look forward to our first rehearsal together on the 28 th September and thank Kerry for beginning the Bach journey tomorrow.
Please encourage as many of your friends to join/ rejoin Amici. Bach.’s extraordinary St Matthew Passion is magnificent, challenging and moving and at times requires two choruses to produce question and answer responses to to allow the drama to unfold. The performance will take place from 15.00 on April 9th 2017.
