“Many congratulations to FulhamCamerata, soloists & orch for a superb perf of my ETERNAL LIGHT:A REQUIEM last night.” Howard Goodall’s Tweet
“James Day’s Fulham Camerata is an excellent choir with a vital and fresh sound. Tight rhythmic control and crisp delivery of words were hallmarks throughout and the tenor and bass sections were of particular note for their rounded tone and smooth delivery.” Classical source
Autumn is upon us
We are back in the swing of things, and are well into our term already. Things are sounding great! If you missed out on giving us a try this term, please consider coming along on November 15 when we begin our Christmas rehearsals.
We are pleased to announce that our autumn concert, which will take place at Holy Cross Church on November 12, will feature Mozart’s Requiem and a contemporary piece by the Latvian composer Eriks Ešenvalds, Passion and Resurrection. It will be wonderful to sing with a chamber orchestra again! Further information is available on the Current Season page.
WE ARE CROWDFUNDING! In order to give Mozart’s Requiem the fantastic chamber orchestra it deserves, we need to raise money to pay for one! We have opened up a JustGiving account to make this easy for us, but we need your support. Donate HERE No amount is too small!
Fulham Camerata is primarily a non-auditioning amateur chamber choir, inclusive and musically diverse; it is supported by a smaller, auditioning Fulham Camerata Ensemble which is mainly made up of professional and semi-professional singers, allowing the main Camerata to tackle exciting repertoire and maintain high musical standards. Its members span all age groups, various nationalities and are drawn from diverse professional and ethnic backgrounds. The joy of singing is what binds us together.
The amateur choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 – 9.30pm at Holy Cross Church, Parsons Green which is on the corner of Ashington Road and Bettridge Road, Fulham SW6 (click on the link for a map). In the spirit of fostering the careers of young professionals, we aim to recruit choral scholars to attend rehearsals and boost our choral lines.
