Bristol Choral Society's new concert season, under conductor Adrian Partington, has been announced and is on sale now.

A packed season of concerts at Bristol's Colston Hall lies ahead, covering a huge variety of music with something for everybody - from major performances with leading professional orchestras, a concert with children, a concert for children, a chance for all to join the choir to come & sing Mozart's Requiem at Colston Hall, plus of course the renowned annual performances of Messiah at Christmas:

Britten's War Requiem 

A major performance of Britten's choral masterpiece with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (recently announced as Classic FM's orchestra in the South of England), three renowned soloists and combined choruses totalling well in excess of 400 performers - timed to take place on the weekend marking 100 year since Benjamin Britten's birth.

Wilfred Owen's poems of the First World War are ingeniously stitched into the Latin texts of the Requiem in Britten's impassioned plea for peace and reconciliation which stunned its first audience into silence before heartfelt applause at its 1962 premiere.
