Programme for the Autumn
Christmas Concert: 9th December, Newton St. Loe
Leading up to Christmas, on the December 9th, at 6pm the Handful will be staging a seasonal celebration at the Holy Trinity Church at Newton St. Loe. Mulled wine will be served from 5:30. Supported by Bath Festivals, this charity concert promises to be a really heart-warming occasion!
Meantime, the Handful is visiting Sienna in late October, and will be performing on Friday 27th in Provenzano (3pm) and on the 28th, 7pm in Sienna at the Basilica dell’ Osservanza. We will be celebrating our tour with works by Monteverdi, Reinberger and Mendelssohn amongst others. Great works in one of the world’s most beautiful and iconic cities – it promises to be two amazing and memorable concerts.
A Handful of Singers, Bath’s highly acclaimed chamber choir of 24 voices, has been performing in and around Bath since its inception in 2002.
The choir is directed by its conductor Christopher Finch, winner of the 2010 BBC Choir of the Year. Under his direction, A Handful of Singers has developed a wide repertoire of music, classical and contemporary, serious and not too serious, and has gained an enviable reputation for the quality and vibrancy of its performances. The choir has, at the moment, spaces for soprano and alto singers (see the joining page for details).
And the choir has released its debut album: do listen to the following sample of excerpts from the CD. The CD may be purchased through members of the choir, by phone – 01225 311850, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
