Time to put SACC dates for 2011 in your diary!

St Albans Chamber Choir returns for its 52nd season in September.

English music is particularly strongly represented this season.  We open with two beautiful works by Herbert Howells in a programme on the theme of Remembrance (November 20th 2010).  The young English composer Will Todd’s jazz-inspired Mass in Blue (January 15th 2011) is a complete contrast and has already become a firm favourite with audiences and performers alike.  The Choir returns to more familiar ground with a programme of a cappella early English music in the beautiful chapel at All Saints (March 12th 2011), before joining with the Wormser Kantorei for Ralph Vaughan Williams’s choral symphonic masterpiece, A Sea Symphony (April 30th 2011).  The season ends with the watery theme continuing in Water, water everywhere (July 2nd 2011), which features the very popular American composer Eric Whitacre among British contributors.
