The French are coming…

Following a highly successful tour de France in the Summer of 2018, for members of the Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus, the north of England will be repaid by two performances of the French Choir they sang with, with two solo concerts (Malton and Buxton) as well as a joint concert with the Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus, members of  the Philharmonischer Chor Bochum, and the world-famous Black Dyke Band, of Saturday 23rd April 7pm – Sheffield City Hall, for Handel’s Messiah

Members of the French choir are driving to Sheffield “so they can enjoy some sight-seeing whilst they are here” explained Matthew, “And for the solo French Concerts we’re looking forward to bringing a mostly French programme, including choral and organ works by Faure, Gounod, Charpentier, Couperin and Dubois, to Malton in Yorkshire and Buxton in Derbyshire”

Catch the French Choir, Musical Director Patrick Hilliard and organist Christopher Hainsworth, at St Michaels Church, Malton, Yorkshire on Friday 22nd April at 18.30, and St John The Baptist Church in Buxton, Derbyshire, on Sunday 24th, at 7pm, paying at the door.
