Kingston Choral Society : Come and Sing Brahms Requiem

Kingston Choral Society Serves up a Feast for Soul and Body

Kingston Choral Society invites singers of all abilities to join with them at the Hollyfield School on the evening of Thursday 30 March between 7.00pm and 10.00pm to sing choruses from Brahms' much loved German Requiem

This superbly tender and melodic work was inspired by the deaths of two people dear to Brahms - his mentor, Robert Schumann, and his mother.

In Ein Deutches Requiem Brahms breaks with the traditonal requiem, with its fearsome Dies Irae. He is more concerned with consoling the living than dwelling on the terrors of death. It is this spiritual empathy that makes his "human Requiem", as he called it, so moving for us today.

Visitors are guaranteed a friendly welcome and an inspirational musical experience. The workshop is led by Kingston Choral Society's music director, Andrew Griffiths with Gavin Roberts, our regular accompanist - both outstanding musicians with national and international reputations.

If you love this marvellous music, and would like to know it better, or just want to sing your heart out (and eat cake), save the date. We expect this to be a popular event and advise people to book early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are on sale at £12 for visitors, £10 for members and Friends of KCS and £6 for students and under 18s at www.kingstonchoralsociety.org.uk  

The ticket price includes music hire for those without their own scores and an interval drink and cake. Home-made cakes will also be on sale
