Amici rehearsal news

Saturday December 5th

Cari Amici,

It is  a delight to work with you as a great choir and such a lovely group of people! The sound we are producing is enticing, warm, focussed, the engagement with text absolute. I am very much looking forward to our next rehearsal, again in St Andrews Church and the Christmas Celebration on december 16th. Tell the world about it!

On Sunday (tomorrow) December 6, a rare chance this Christmas to hear Handel Messiah…when Cantata choir and orchestra perform in St Eanswythe’s Church, Folkestone.  A chamber group of 28 singers , all soloists from within the choir together with small orchestra most of whom played with Amici two weeks ago.

 Tickets  can be reserved in advance…they are going fast…so grab them.01304 257248 or 07877 407702

 Similarly, Marian Consort tickets are going quickly … Thursday December 10.

 Hope  to see you at one of the concerts.
