The Genius of Purcell

For its Spring concert RO will be presenting a celebration of Henry Purcell’s life and work including excerpts from his operas, musical dramas,  royal anthems, sacred works and chamber music. So there will be lots of opportunities for solos, duets, ensemble pieces and choruses. We also hope to involve some baroque dancers and a boys/girls’ cathedral-type choir

Rehearsals start Wed January 3rd 7.30 2018 at the Vineyard. The cost for participation is £60.

The concert is provisionally set for a Saturday in late May at Normansfield.

The ever-popular AGM & Members concert and party

This will be at the Turk’s Head, Twickenham on Sunday January 28th 2018 (6.45/7.30pm).

It’s an informal evening (with hot food and drink) in which everyone is invited to perform, do a party piece, whatever takes their fancy. Past gatherings have included folk songs, poetry readings, Cliff Richard impersonations and even some Baroque arias!

More information to follow – but please keep the date free and come along and/or take part.
