SHEFFIELD Chorale is extending an invitation to join them at an open rehearsal between 7.15pm and 9.30pm at Endcliffe Methodist Church, Ecclesall Road on Monday, January 9, and all are welcome.
At it, the choir will be singing the two Brahms works that make up its next concert at Holy Trinity Church, Millhouses on March 17, his German Requiem in its two-piano version and Liebeslieder (Love-song) Waltzes Op 52.
“It’s an opportunity for anyone interested in singing, perhaps with Chorale, to come along and have a chat with me and other choir members,” says music director Neil Taylor.
Originally the Radio Sheffield Choir formed by James Kirkwood 1974 and heard nationally, the choir’s name changed to The Sheffield Chorale in 1984 when it began successfully expanding its membership and repertoire.
It now describes itself as “one of Sheffield’s most exciting mixed voice choirs” and certainly has one of widest and mixed repertoires to its name built up by Jim Kirkwood and the professional music directors who have succeeded him since his retirement in 2005.
