Diversity Choir’s first concert appearance for two years will be at the beautiful St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge, close to either Knightsbridge or Hyde Park Corner tube stations, at 7:30pm on Saturday 4 December 2021.
It seemed appropriate to entitle this “Back Together Again”, and we will be singing some old and new favourite pieces, classical and popular, from Monteverdi and Brahms to Queen!
Ticket prices are £15 (£10 concessions) on the door, or £12 (£8 concessions) in advance.
To ensure everyone feels safe this will be a shorter concert without an interval, we will be offering socially distanced seating, and encouraging audience members to wear masks if possible during the performance. Contactless payments will be accepted for tickets on the door.
Emerging from the zoom
Diversity Choir has been meeting on Zoom for the past year, but we are now carefully planning to rehearse in-person again, and to perform safely with a wonderful Christmas concert.
We have been encouraging current, former, and new members to meet us firstly on Zoom to get a feel of the repertoire we are planning and then – when we all felt comfortable – to join us in the same room so that we can really enjoy the sound of singing together once more.
During lockdown Diversity Choir joined the Proud Voices network of choirs from around the UK and Ireland for a virtual festival. This is still available to watch on YouTube.
We are singing a medley of songs from West Side Story recorded in 2016 at the Amasing Choirfestival in Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw.
