The major concert of the Chorale’s year will take place on May 10th 2014 at Shrewsbury Abbey, where the choir has performed several times previously to great acclaim. The Chorale will be accompanied by the Orchestra of the Severn and the guest soloist will be Shrewsbury –born Adrian Spillett, winner of the BBC Young Musician Competition in 1998 and recently appointed Principal Percussionist with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Adrian will perform the Concerto for Marimba and string orchestra by Brazilian composer, Ney Rosauro, whose unique style of writing combines charming melodies with catchy rhythms and which uses the rich elements of Brazilian folk music to enchanting effect.

The Chorale will sing two major works in the concert – Vaughan Williams’s ‘Toward the unknown Region’ and the latest Karl Jenkins choral work, ‘The Peacemakers’, a setting of words of peace from such iconic figures as Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, and Mother Teresa. The concert will begin with the popular ‘Montagues and Capulets’ movement from Prokofiev’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’. It starts at 7.30pm – looking forward to seeing you there!
