UPCOMING PROJECTS AND PERFORMANCES

Fundraiser concert
27 January 2018

queens-park-bandstand-resized.jpg

This concert has a dual purpose, as we are not only celebrating the recording of our last project, The Happy Prince, but also looking forward to our next project, which will be a specially written community opera about Queens Park.  Written by Mary Phillips, the opera will commemorate the visit of Queen Victoria to Queens Park 150 years ago.  We plan to involve adults and children from the local area as performers. 

The Fundraiser concert will feature a range of pieces that demonstrate the technical and harmonic skill of the choir, such as Eric Whitmore's 'Seal Lullaby', David Brunner's 'Jabberwocky', Bob Chilcott's 'The Lily and the Rose' and an extremely intricate setting of The Beatles' 'Blackbird, as well as many more. 

Refreshments will be on sale on the night.

Fundraiser concert venue:

Malorees Junior School
Christchurch Avenue
NW6 7PB
Time: 6:30pm

Tickets:

Family ticket (2 adults + 2 children), including a copy of the CD: £30
Additional children’s tickets: £6
Adult ticket: £20 including CD or £12 without the CD. 

Tickets will be available on the door from 6pm.



Happy Prince Recording

The Junior Singers have just released a recording of Malcolm Williamson's opera The Happy Prince, which they performed to great acclaim in November 2014.

It has never been recorded by children or a mixed adult cast of singers.

Copies of this CD will be on sale at our FUNDRAISER concert on 27 January 2018.

If you would like to purchase a copy or find out more about our recording, please GET IN TOUCH.

READ MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT

"Williamson’s music has been absent from concert halls and opera stages for many years and especially since his death more than 10 years ago. The Happy Prince is reminder enough as to why it should return to prominence. I hope that this performance of The Happy Prince will be recorded, as surely this is what Williamson would have seen as the ideal performance."
