On 29th September two music groups will be joining forces at the Reading University Great Hall to bring you a dazzling ‘Classical Spectacular’! Earley-based Trinity Concert Band and Reading-based Tamesis Chamber Choir will perform together for the first time in what promises to be a memorable evening brimming with some of the greatest, most well-known classical music of all time. The audience can expect to hear numbers such as Bernstein’s fabulous ‘Overture to Candide’, ‘Jupiter’ from Holst’s spectacular suite The Planets, the great British anthem ‘Zadok the Priest’, and Copland’s rousing ‘Fanfare for the Common Man’.
No classical concert would be complete without a performance of Elgar’s ‘Nimrod’, and we’re delighted that Tamesis will be singing the choral version ‘Lux Aeterna’, in addition to Parry’s ‘I Was Glad’, made famous at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
As the concert reaches draws to a close the band and choir will come together once more for a stunning proms-style finale (yes, flags will be provided!), featuring the classics ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘Fantasia on British Sea Songs’.
The concert will feature an interval where guests can enjoy a selection of refreshments from the bar in the foyer, plus a chance to win some excellent prizes in our raffle.
