New season for Seaton society

18:30 26 August 2014

Archant

Seaton Choral Society will hold its first rehearsal of the coming season on Wednesday, September 3, at Seaton Methodist Church, Scalwell Lane, Seaton, starting at 7.30pm.

This flourishing society, now in its 17th year, is around 50 strong and has performed many of the great oratorios such as Handel’s Messiah, Mozart’s Requiem and Haydn’s Creation, along with less-performed masterpieces , shorter works and programmes of Christmas carols. It has a dynamic young director of music in Dr Peter Milmer, who with an excellent hand-picked orchestra conducted last May’s concert featuring Faurés Requiem and Elgar’s Give unto the Lord.

The next concert, scheduled for Sunday, December 14, will be a performance of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. The society will warmly welcome new members of all voices who would like to join during the first weeks of September. Scores will be provided, and the ability to sight-read, though by no means essential, is a bonus. The weekly rehearsals are relaxed and fun, and plenty of time will be allowed for getting to know this joyous music with the help of the particularly fine accompanist, Michèle Banting.

Next spring Mendelssohn’s Elijah will be presented with full orchestra - incidentally the work chosen back in 1998 to launch the society under its present name.

For further details, please contact the secretary Nicholas Arrow on 01297 552482 or email him nicholasarrow@btinternet.com For more information visit www.seatonchoralsociety.co.uk
