Details

St George’s R.C. Church is where Elgar and his music began their journey to fame.  It was where Elgar followed his father as organist, in 1885.
The Trianon Music Group is an orchestra and choir group, based in Ipswich and sing in the town and further afield.
The Elgar Chorale is a mixed voice choir with up to 40 singers, many professional musicians. We run a busy programme of concerts in Worcester and beyond.
The two ensembles will perform their own programme for half of the concert, coming together at the end of each half.
The programme, will include music by Karl Jenkins, Howard Goodall, Scott Joplin, Elgar, John Rutter and others. From spirituals to lullabies, madrigals to anthems.  From ‘A Capella’ and accompanied singing, to organ solos and instrumental pieces. This concert will have it all!
Beginning with Trianon singing the spirituals “Marchin’ on up” and “River to Judea”.  An instrumental interlude with Vivaldi and Elgar from Trianon’s wind players will follow.  Two anthems from Karl Jenkins and one from Howard Goodall, lead into Elgar’s “Vesper Voluntary” with Stephen Hogger on the organ.  Will Todd’s “Lighting the Way” and “Every Stone Shall Cry” is followed by Scott Joplin’s “Elite Variations” for wind ensemble.  The first half ends with with both choirs singing Elgar’s beautiful “The Spirit of the Lord”.
The second half will contain two madrigals by Howells, “In Youth is Pleasure” and “Before me Careless Lying”.  It will also include the rousing “Imperial March” by Elgar played by Andrew Caskie on the organ and Piers Maxim’s own lovely “Four Lullabies for the Girls”.  With John Rutter’s arrangement of the spiritual “Down by the Riverside” bringing the concert to a close, there will be something for everyone!
Light refreshments will be available to purchase at the interval.  Tickets are available on-line at www.elgarchorale.com by contacting the administrator on 01684 594570 and on the door.
Timings are 1930 to 2200 on Saturday 28 October; Prices are £12 (£5 for students).
We look forward to seeing you at St George’s!
