CAPEL CHORAL SOCIETY ~ This year will again be busy for the Society but a quick re-cap to 2012 which we rounded off with the annual Capel Choral Cantata Concert in Warnham Church. A good musical time was had by all and rounded off nicely with the festive ingredients of mulled wine and mince pie.

So on to 2013, and not least the Leith Hill Music Festival founded in 1904 with CCS as one of the original members.

The Festival will always be associated with its most recognised musician, Ralph Vaughan Williams, who was Festival Conductor up until r 953.

Over the past 109 years there have only been 5 conductors -the present one being Brian Kay (coming up to 20 years) -musician, broadcaster and former King’s Singer.

The Festival takes place over a 3 day period in April-Thursday I I rh I Friday 12th I Saturday 13th ~ held in Dorking Halls and split into 3 Divisions -a Division a day.

CCS·will be performing in Division r on Saturday 13th April-hopefully lucky!

Each morning hosts the (friendly) competition at 9am while at 2.15pm the afternoon is spent practising and combining the choirs for the Evening Concert at 7.30pm
