French & German Choirs join us for WW1 Centenary

Northampton Bach Choir at All Saints' Church, Northampton

On Saturday November 8, at the Derngate Theatre, the Northampton Bach Choir will join with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to perform a Special Concert of Remembrance – Lest We Forget.

In a poignant and fitting move, in this the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, the choir has invited singers from Northampton’s twin towns of Poitiers and Marburg to sing with them.

A party of 11 visitors from Marburg and 21 from Poitiers will join the choir for this moving concert with the RPO, under the baton of Nick Davies, featuring reflective music from John Rutter, Karl Jenkins, Barber and Mozart, alongside emotive works from Holst and Verdi.

The concert also features the gifted soprano Elin Manahan Thomas.

The two parties will be hosted by members of the Northampton Bach Choir and in addition to their participation in the concert itself, they will attend a reception hosted by His Worship the Mayor of Northampton, John Caswell, at the Guildhall along with members of the Northampton Twinning Association.

NBC chairman, David Tristram said:
 
This is a unique opportunity for friends from our twin towns to come together and commemorate an event so significant for us all. It is fitting tribute to all those who lost their lives in this conflict – and to the peace eventually established between the countries of Europe.
