Ilkley and Otley Choral Societies Jubilee Concert
Ilkley and Otley Choral Societys are proud to present their concert to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.
The first half will comprise of Parry’s “I was glad…” which was sung at the Coronation 70 years ago and Dvorak’s “Te Deum”.
A Te Deum is traditionally sung at a time of national rejoicing. In this first half the choirs will be accompanied on the organ by St.Margaret’s Director of Music, Christopher Rathbone.
The second half is devoted to Brahm’s “German Requiem” and the choirs will be accompanied by the Yorkshire Chamber Ensemble (leader Sally Robinson ) using a reduced orchestral version. This Requiem does not follow the usual pattern of requiems and is rather a work for the living rather than the dead. It is an appropriate work to perform following shortly after the memorial service in London for the late Duke of Edinburgh.
The choir will be joined by soloists Charlotte Trepess (Sop) and Oskar McCarthy (Baritone) .
The concert will be conducted by our brilliant Musical Director, Jennifer Sterling.
