Choirs make great music together

SACC welcomed the Wormser Kantorei, its long-time partner choir from St Albans’s German twin-town Worms, for the 22nd joint concert in their long association.  On Saturday 30 April 2011 in St Albans Cathedral the joint choirs performed Ralph Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony, soloists Anna Gorbachyova (soprano) and Toby Stafford-Allen (baritone), and Johannes Brahms’s Schicksalslied, accompanied by St Albans Symphony Orchestra under conductors John Gibbons and Stefan Merkelbach.  The two choirs had enjoyed several days of rehearsal and socialising together before the concert, and now look forward to their next meeting in 2013.
