The Elgar Chorale of Worcester and the choirs of Great Malvern Priory directed by Piers Maxim, Organist and Director of Music at the Priory, join forces to perform an eclectic concert of delightful music in a fundraising event to provide money to buy new robes for the Priory choir.
The ‘sacred’ works will be sung by the Priory choirs, drawing on their repertoire singing services each week in the Priory Church, whereas the ‘profane’ secular pieces are performed by the Elgar Chorale, one of the leading chamber choirs in the county. Expect to hear such composers as S S Wesley, Pearsall, Parry, Rutter and Elgar, as well as pieces and arrangements especially written by Piers Maxim himself! The two choirs come together with a finale of Elgar’s ‘Light of the World’ and Piers’ ‘The King Shall Rejoice’ to send you home whistling a tune or two…
Tickets are £10 (under 18s are free) by cash at the door on the evening or in advance from Malvern Tourist Information Centre (cash or card), with tea and cake included. The event is supported by the Mayor of Malvern, Councillor Clive Hooper, who will be in attendance.
