10% off all tickets for Petros Singers’ Concerts
“I can honestly say that I have never heard such a fine performance from any choir in London – an unforgettable evening.”
Petros Singers is one of London’s leading amateur chamber choirs – they take great pleasure in singing beautiful music to a high standard, placing particular emphasis on vibrant and communicative singing. Based in Hammersmith since 1983, they perform a wide variety of music at three or four concerts a year in West and Central London. Their repertoire is often idiosyncratic, eschewing the typical canonical works to shine a light on forgotten masterpieces and rare choral treasures.
The Petros Singers have an exciting programme lined up for the coming season and hope to welcome you to A Royal Occasion, which celebrates 400 years of music for and performed at the great royal coronations, wedding and funerals. They are thrilled to be joined by the three musicians – Elin Manahan Thomas, David Blackadder and Luke Bond – who so memorably performed Handel’s Eternal Source of Light Divine as Meghan Markle walked down the aisle at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle to be married to Prince Harry. Join them at Holy Trinity Sloane Square on Saturday 4 April 2020 for what promises to be a spectacular concert.
Petros Singers’ summer concert features music celebrating the four seasons, with Jonathan Dove’s vivid part-song cycle, The Passing of the Year, forming the centrepiece; commissioned by the London Symphony Chorus, this cycle is one of the seminal works of secular choral music written this century. Alongside it, they will present music by Brahms, Debussy, Stanford and Delius exploring the varied characteristics of spring, summer, autumn and winter. Renowned pianist Michael Higgins will provide some piano solos and members of Petros Singers will deliver seasonal readings to complete the perfect programme for a summer’s evening. The Passing of the Year takes place at St George’s Campden Hill on Saturday 27 June.
To bring the year to a close, they will be performing Christ’s Nativity which features music from across the centuries focusing on the birth of Jesus. The programme will include Britten’s mixed-voice Christmas cantata, Christ’s Nativity, alongside a diverse range of music, from Baroque composers Gabrieli and Praetorious to C20th and C21st works by Tavener, Willcocks, Howells and Rutter. This festive concert – complete with mulled wine, mince pies and audience carols – will take place at St Peter’s, Black Lion Lane, Hammersmith on Saturday 12 December.
