Monday evenings 7.30pm-9.30pm
St James’ and St Basil’s Church, Fenham
Next concert on Saturday 20th July (repertoire to include St Nicholas Mass - Josef Haydn)
St James’ and St Basil’s Singers is an ‘open to all’ choir that meets on Monday evenings at the church. With a focus on classical music this group will sing secular and non-secular choral works in the ideal accoustic of J’s & B’s. Music Director Simon Davies-Fidler will help singers to develop music reading skills and choral singing technique whilst working towards performances each term. There is no audition required for this ensemble, so come and give it a go!
The Choir was re-established in 2016 and has already chalked up some really exciting performances: a Last Night of the Proms concert with Royal Northern Sinfonia at Sage Gateshead; performances of Berstein’s Chichester Psalms, Chilcott Requiem and Faure Requiem at J’s & B’s Church; a performance of Britten’s St Nicholas at Newcastle Cathedral and a collaboration with the Paul Edis Trio singing Will Todd’s Jazz Missa Brevis and Songs of Peace.
