JUNE Sunday 9th June  4:30pm Sunday Recital Tredici Chamber Choir Conductor: Richard Thomas Sacred Music by Palestrina, Durufle & Desenclos Palestrina – Missa Brevis Durufle – Ubi Caritas & Tantum Ergo Desenclos – Nos Autem & Salve Regina Palestrina – Exsultate Deo Tredici was established by Richard Thomas in December 2004, to sing at the Leprosy Mission Carol Service at St Giles-in-the-Fields, Holborn. There were 13 singers in the choir at that first event – hence Tredici. St Giles is still where we rehearse for just one hour a week, on Monday lunchtimes. Over the past 14 years the choir's membership has evolved into the current group of around 35 members, all of whom are experienced singers drawn from a variety of leading London choirs including the Philharmonia Chorus, the BBC Symphony Chorus and the London Symphony Chorus. Most of our concerts are performed a cappella but since 2015 we have put on an annual Spring concert at St James’s Piccadilly, with orchestra. In March 2020 we plan to perform Brahms’ Requiem, in the chamber version orchestrated by Joachim Linckelmann. This concert marks Tredici’s 79th concert performance. Admission free, suggested donation £8       _____________________________________________________________ Thursday 13th June 1:10pm Lunchtime concert Waukee High School (USA) International Tour Choir Palestrina - Dixit Maria Victoria - Jesu Dulcis Memoria Carissimi - Plorate Filii Israel Palestrina - Sicut Servus Viadana - Exultate Justi Tallis - If Ye Love Me Purcell - Thou Knowest Lord Rheinberger - Abendlied Parker/Shaw - Hark I Hear the Harps Eternal Paulus - Road Home Hogan - This Little Light Pfautsch - Musick’s Empire The Waukee High School Choir Department is excited to offer its first international choir tour.  Waukee High School has a strong tradition of excellence, and has twice been selected to send ensembles to national conventions for the American Choral Directors Association.  Students from all six curricular choirs are represented in the touring ensemble.  More than 325 students participate in choir on a daily basis at Waukee High School.  The students who participate in this touring ensemble have learned the music in weekly rehearsals outside the school day, demonstrating a clear commitment to their continued participation in music.
