Our Evensong this weekend will be a bit of a birthday party – with civic dignitaries and leading county arts and religious figures on our guest list.
We’ve invited friends, sponsors, supporters past and present to join us and the congregation for the service which is our 20th Anniversary Evensong and is followed by a celebration reception in the Chapter House.
Saturday’s occasion is our first big event in this special years which also includes a performance of Brahms’ German Requiem in April and a summer gala dinner, not to mention our fund-raising ceilidh on February 9 in Peopleton Village Hall (more anon).
Reception attendees will be able to enjoy a bit of celebration birthday cake and the opportunity to find out more about our plans for the future.
“We’re a high quality and innovative group which alongside our regular cathedral service and concert programme commitments, is looking to work in partnership with local organisations for mutual benefit,” says our MD Stephen. “We are also committed to bringing further ambitious and innovative programmes to the city that will not only add to its cultural life but reinforce Worcester’s reputation as a great place in which to live, work and visit.”
Saturday’s anthem is Parry’s Hear My Words, Ye People. Listen to us sing it here on our CD Rise Heart.
