Come & Sing: Fauré’s Requiem (Sat 22 June 2013)

faure_requiemSopranos, altos, tenors and basses from across the North West are invited to join the Prescot Festival Chorus for a special performance of Fauré’s Requiem this June.

Philip Arkwright (Liverpool Cathedral) will conduct, with Peter Kwater (St Bartholomew’s Church, Rainhill) at the organ. Confirmed soloists so far include Ruth Anderson. Singers pay £4 to participate (bring your own score, Novello/Ratcliffe edition), and we guarantee an enjoyable and inspiring experience working with a first-class professional conductor and musicians.

The performance takes place at 7.00pm on Saturday 22 June at Prescot Parish Church, with rehearsals on Wednesday 19 June (7.00-9.00pm) and on the day (3.00-5.00pm). The final concert, entitled From Darkness to Light, will also feature the Liverpool Harmonic Gospel Choir, and tickets are £4 in advance or on the door.

    Two questions:

    My daughter might be interested in singing the Faure Requiem, but lives in Yorkshire and would be unable to attend the Wednesday rehearsal. She is a competent choral singer. Is it absolutely necessary to attend both rehearsals if some work was done at home prior to the event?

    What is meant by ‘smart dress?’

    Thanks. I look forward to your relies

      Hi, Hilary,

      Great to hear your daughter is interested. It’s no problem if she can’t attend the Wednesday rehearsal. There are usually a few singers who can only make it on the day.

      Smart dress would typically be a blouse/shirt and skirt or trousers. Any colours are fine. We’re not strict, just as long as singers don’t turn up in T-shirt and jeans!

      I’ll drop you an email, too, just in case you don’t see this.
