Following the successes of Music for All in August and Broomdasher in October, we’re now looking forward to a concert for All Saints and Remembrance on Saturday 20th November 2021. This will be the first performance for newly-formed chamber choir Refugium!
Refugium is a brand new chamber choir formed in the wake of lockdown. The impact of the pandemic on the Arts is well known – not only in terms of the financial impact on musicians, singer, directors, actors and theatre staff but also in terms of the great benefits that singing and performing bring to friendship, mental health and wellbeing. Refugium’s various members had sung together in several different acclaimed choirs in Herefordshire, Cardiff and beyond and, as soon as it was possible to meet again, some sessions in Bosbury Church were organised. The choir has a mutual appreciation not only for singing, but also coffee, cake, cats, curry and cricket! This is the choir’s first concert, but we hope to continue. If you would like to be kept informed of future events please contact Esther Kay on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01531 670634.
We are very fortunate in Bosbury church to have the benefit of the Grade 2 listed Speechly and Ingram organ with an unusually extensive palette of sounds which you will hear in the programme tonight. This historic instrument is in need of some refurbishment to save it for future generations, and details of an appeal will be made known shortly.
