Stour Singers

Enjoy Singing?  A warm welcome awaits you in Stour Singers, Shipston’s Choral Society.  There are vacancies in all voice parts – NO AUDITIONS!

The choir draws members from a wide area of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire and gives two concerts each season, in December and May, in St.Edmund’s Church, Shipston-on-Stour.  The new season is particularly adventurous.

On Sat 8th December 2007 at 7.30 p.m. Stour Singers combine with Caliche, the professional South American Folk Band, to present ‘Christmas Music - Latin-American style.’  The main works are the Navidad Nuestra (Folk Nativity) and Misa Criolla (Creole Mass) of the contemporary Argentinian composer, Ariel Ramirez.  There will be plenty of more familiar carols for choir & audience too.

Then on Sat 10th May 2008 at 7.30 p.m. Stour Singers perform Mozart’s well-loved Requiem and Haydn’s Mariazeller Mass with The Cherwell Orchestra, soloists and Rachel Bird (organ).  Both concerts will be conducted by Richard Emms, the founder director of Stour Singers

Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 7.30 p.m. in the Hall of Shipston Primary School.  The annual subscription is £50; music is usually hired and is free to choir members.
