“That was fantastic!”

Just one comment from an enthusiastic member of the audience on 29th November. And actually it was too. Given the fact that the musical director, Stephen Hope, had had a near-death experience in a head on car crash the previous week and had to conduct from a seated position, choir and orchestra (the Sinfonia da Chiesa, leader Levine Andrade) came together in sweet harmony and treated the audience to Duruflé and Haydn at their best.

But what a shame there were only about 100 in that audience. A first class orchestra, professional musicians, and a talented local choir – it doesn’t get much better than that outside of London. If you were a member of the audience in Basildon on 29th November, and if you enjoyed what you heard, please help spread the word. These great composers deserve a wider hearing – and so do the people who sing their works !

    Another great performance! But how do you build an audience?
