We are HUGELY excited to celebrate 180 years of the choral society and 100 years since the birth of Brian Boydell, a key figure in the choir’s (and musical life in trinity’s) history, with our Hilary Term Concert in the National Concert Hall on Wednesday the 5th of April.
To celebrate we will be performing a truly original work; Brian Boydell’s Under No Circumstances. This work was composed specifically for the choir and is, more importantly, about the choir. For the work, Boydell selected excerpts from the minutes of the early days of the society, as such, it is intrinsically linked to our history as a choir and makes no better way to celebrate our 180-year anniversary. The work is laced with satire, witty moments and dark humour, the outcry against ladies attending the societies concerts being just one of many highlights of this rarely-performed work.
To balance this comedic twist, we have Brahms’ German Requiem, a powerhouse of the German Romantic era, the Requiem is renowned for its striking melodies, wonderful counterpoint, and memorable melodies.
Be sure to join Choral as we ring in our 180 in the National Concert Hall with a night of fantastic music. Be sure to get good seats, as this will be a night not to be missed!
