Stour Singers

On 14th May 2011 Mendelssohnís dramatic oratorio Elijah was given an electric performance by Stour Singers & The Cherwell Orchestra conducted by Richard Emms in St Edmundís Church, Shipston-on-Stour.  The soloists, Sarah Power (soprano), Sofie Almroth (mezzo-soprano), Richard Dowling (tenor) made a fine trio alongside the renowned Welsh operatic baritone, Jeremy Huw Williams in the title role.  He portrayed the Old Testament prophet so vividly he had the capacity audience on the edge of their seats.  Richard Emms galvanized his choir to respond likewise, transmitting all the emotions of the drama, from despair to serenity, with such clarity that some experienced visitors in the audience declared this to be the best Elijah they had ever heard. 

Stour Singersí next concert, also in St Edmundís, will be on Saturday 3rd December 2011 at 7.30pm featuring Handelís Messiah.  Rehearsals start at 7.00pm on Thursday 8th September in the Community Lounge at Shipston High School. 

 New members are always welcome - no auditions!  If you have always wanted to sing or especially to take part in Handelís great work, now is your opportunity.  Please contact Vic Twyman on Tel: 01451 870361 for further details.
