Our next concert features beautiful, indulgent 20th century gems with crunchy harmonies, edgy rhythms and unfamiliar languages. On 8 December 2018, we are starting Advent with an exciting concert including Poulenc’s Gloria and Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms.
Powerful, modern works which both premiered in the 1960s, these pieces demonstrate the range of musical innovation in mid-century composition.
We are back at our regular venue of St Matthias this December. Please get in touch for ticket reservations.
The Torbay Singers was formed in summer 1967 through a merger of the Torquay Philharmonic Society and the Lansdowne Singers. To celebrate 50 years of music-making in South Devon and beyond, the choir was delighted to present a special celebration season of major events, starting with a sparkling Christmas celebration, Joy to the World on Saturday 2nd December 2017. Spring fulfilled a long-held ambition to present Monteverdi’s splendid Vespers of 1610, with an orchestra including historic brass instruments evoking the majesty of St Mark’s Venice. Summer took the choir back to the serene surroundings of Buckfast Abbey for a joyful programme of sacred song.
