23 / 03 / 2012 - Carnegie Hall Performance

On the evening of Thursday 22 March, we performed live at Carnegie Hall New York, sharing the stage with The New York Staff Band of the Salvation Army on the occasion of their 125th Anniversary. Given our long association with the Salvation Army, we were delighted to join them for this special event.

Two new pieces were arranged for us to perform with The New York Staff Band by composers Len Ballantine and Stephen Bulla. In addition to these we also performed one set of music from our Choral Essays recordings, including the title tracks from all three CDs: The Quiet Heart, In This Quiet Moment, and Reflections, as well as some of our close-harmony favourites. 

The final concert of the current US Tour takes place on Saturday 24 March in Nashville, TN. Our performance of the programme "Pater Noster" is being recorded live for release on the Naxos label in Autumn 2012, we are delighted to be recording this beautiful music for them.

  • Saint Galmier is somewhere we love to return to time and time again - and not least because it's the home of the wonderful Badoit spring water! Sadly we seem to go every 8-10 years or so, and we wish it were more often as the church is beautiful, the audience appreciative, and the food and wine excellent. Last night's concert and rehearsal were great fun, but also very useful to introduce Julian to our touring life. We sang for 10 minutes with Jules, at the end of the rehearsal, and what we heard and felt made us very excited for September and beyond. We have more time to work with him before our summer break, at the forthcoming concerts in Germany as part of the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, so those of you who are coming to Paul's last few concerts may well get to meet his successor as well. read

  • Off we go to France, to sing in La Batie, near to Lyon. Julian is joining us so that we can start preparation for September. If you want to come along to show your support and meet our fantastic new tenor, we are singing in the East Sussex village of Mayfield on 25 September. This is a charity concert in aid of the Hospice in the Weald, which provides palliative care to those most in need in the South East of England. It's a wonderful cause to support. Tickets will be on sale from 1 August and you can check our website for details of how to purchase from that date. read
  • After two wonderful concerts in Northern Italy, we head home today for a week of rest and preparation. We'll be helping Julian to start his KS journey, as well as learning a few new pieces for the upcoming Schleswig Holstein festival. We're also returning to the Three Choirs Festival next week, one of the finest choral festivals going, so it's an exciting way to end the season! read
