Cranleigh Choral Society has been a regular feature of village life for over 100 years. Today it continues to provide opportunities to participate in music-making at the heart of the local community and to become part of a circle of music enthusiasts, both in and out of rehearsals.
Cranleigh Choral Society present Music for Advent, on Saturday December 14th at 7.30pm in Cranleigh Village Hall; together with Susan Jiway, soprano, Paul Hopwood, tenor, and the Merriman Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Thomas.
The concert begins with F. Schubert’s Mass in G Major, followed by the Concerto for Violin & Oboe in C minor, by J.S. Bach, performed by the Merriman Chamber Orchestra, leader Kevin Weaver with Sarah Williams on oboe.
After the interval the choir will sing ‘O Magnum Mysterium’ by the American composer Morten Lauridsen, and the concert will conclude with the choir and soloists performing J.S. Bach’s lovely Christmas Cantata ‘Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme’.
Tickets are available from choir members, or on the door, for £12.
We will be holding an Open Rehearsal on Monday 16th September for anyone who would like to see what we are all about.
