Wow! What an amazing concert we had last night in Fulham. Undeterred by the District Line closure, our guests were in for a real treat. We’ve loved singing these two stunning pieces of music, but like all good things, it must come to an end as we are on to our summer term and more treats to come!
Our next concert is on June 22 at the gorgeous riverside venue of St Mary’s Putney Bridge. We’re back to our lighter format of short pieces, mostly madrigals, centered around another of our favorite composers, John Rutter. His collection The Sprig of Thyme forms the backbone of the program, which features other pieces from around the British Isles — including one very special composition by our bass choral scholar, Seb Johnson! You won’t want to miss it, so watch this space.
Rehearsals begin on Tuesday, April 2 if you are minded to join us.
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.
