The Verdi Requiem is now sold out - Brian's last concert with us! However, Thursday and Friday still have spaces. Brian always likes to see a good house and encourages us all to support all the Festival concerts, not just those with which we are directly involved. No day is more important than any other, and all three concerts give him and the choirs just as much pleasure. Vaughan Williams' ravishingly beautiful Serenade to Music, Haydn’s fine Harmoniemesse and a lyrically beautiful Mass setting by the teenage Schubert joining forces with Henry Purcell at his most joyous and celebratory, make Thursday and Friday concerts not to miss.
Rehearsals for the St John Passion with chorus master Ben Costello have been enjoyed by a record number of independent and Festival singers and we hope that we’ll have a correspondingly large and responsive audience. If you haven’t yet got your ticket, please do secure it now! This work is somehow considered less popular than the 'St Matthew', but it's dramatic effects render a very moving version of the passion story, so please come and enjoy this wonderful music.
We look forward to seeing you for a fabulous Festival and thank you for your support of community music making. You may want to try the online box office for the Dorking Halls (see the 'Buy Tickets' page on this website for the appropriate links to separate pages for each night) if the usual methods for our own box office - also shown there - are not convenient.
