Capel Choral Society: Into Autumn

Capel Choral Society is well into its autumn ‘term’ and has enjoyed a first ‘sing-through’ of the music it is singing during the 2014/15 Season. It has also taken part in a ‘Come & Sing’ event at Dorking Halls at which the new work Dances of Time by Bob Chilcott was sung for the first time. – the piece was especially commissioned for the Leith Hill Musical Festival.

As well as music for the Festival, the Choir will be learning music for its Christmas concert (on 15th December) – this will include Charpentier’s delightful Messe de Minuit, and Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium.

On a non-musical level, the Choir will be holding a Coffee Morning on Saturday 4th October, in the Memorial Hall, from 10am to Midday. Please do come along and meet members of the choir, enjoy a cup of coffee and some cake, take part in a raffle, and of course buy some goodies on offer. Capel Choral will be celebrating its 110th birthday this month, and we are hoping to grow the choir this season to ensure that it will still be singing in 2024 and beyond. We would still welcome new singers (it will be fairly easy to ‘catch up’ at this stage of the term) and especially MEN. Choral singing is an enjoyable activity with proven health benefits, and few things beat the satisfaction of mastering a new piece of music!
