Headington Singers Spring Concert

posted 29 Feb 2020, 13:37 by CTH Webmaster   [ updated 18 Apr 2021, 09:21 by CTH Admin ]



The Headington Singers and Orchestra, conductor Sally Mears, are holding their Spring Concert on Friday the 20th of March at All Saints' Church. Featuring music by Mozart, his Requiem and Solemn Vespers.

Mozart's sublime Requiem has been a favourite of choirs and audiences since it was written - but not completed - shortly before Mozart's untimely death in 1791. The Vespers are less well-known but unmistakably from the maestro, written for use in Salzburg Cathedral. One movement, the Laudate, is a beautiful soprano solo, well known in its own right. Classics indeed!

The soloists for this performance are Sara Stowe (soparano), Serenna Wagner (alto), Peter Willis (tenor), and Will Orr (bass).

The concert starts at 7:30pm, tickets are £12/£10 on the door and children can enter free.

This Advent, we are delighted to be able to offer a film showing for families. The event will be held after school on Wednesday 18th December at St Andrew’s Church, Headington, OX3 9DL. 

We will be showing “The Star” – a fantastic re-imagining of the Nativity story, told from the perspective of the donkey! Doors will open at 4.00pm, when we will be serving food for the children and mulled drinks for the adults. You can enjoy a “follow the star” game in the church, before the film begins at 5.00pm. Children are welcome to bring cushions and dressing-gowns with them to be as comfortable as possible! 

The film will be over by 6.30pm, at which time it’s back home for bed! This event is ideal for children aged 2-10, but parents / carers must be present throughout. Look out for posters around the local area. If you have any questions about this event, please ask Tim Howles.
