The Armed Man : Workshop Success

Following our recent workshop with John Rutter CBE, our own Musical Director directed our 2017 biennial “Come and Sing” day, this time tacking Sir Karl Jenkins’ “The Armed Man: a Mass for Peace”. With over 250 singers, and ensemble of ten instrumentalists, and an audience of just short than 100, the hall at our host venue, Northampton High School, was full to bursting (indeed, we ran out of chairs, meaning the last few members of the audience ended up perched on the edge of the stage)! In the space of just a few short hours of rehearsal, Lee and accompanist Ivan covered the whole work, and within the course of the afternoon the work was ready for performance.

Many, many thanks again to the Bach Choir for hosting another very successful Come and Sing event, which was hugely enjoyable! Thank you for your hard work in all the arrangements and with your co-helpers to make a very well organised event, which ran like clockwork!

We have already received a number of notes of thanks from the singing participants and audience members, not just about the fabulous musical performance, but also on how smoothly the choir managed to organise such a large number of singers, accommodating their particular needs, and keeping them well supplied with refreshments throughout the day.

Please pass on our huge thanks to your Musical Director, Lee, who was both entertaining and educative – always a winning combination. He and the accompanist made the rehearsals enormous fun and I hope you were all pleased with the performance at the end of the day.

Details of the next “Come and Sing” day will be posted early in 2018 – it will be a very exciting one indeed. Keep an eye on the website for more information!
