Join us for an afternoon of delightful music on Sunday 29th March at 3.00pm
The Hills Singers have been singing together for over 25 years. The choir has a membership of 25 voices and is based in Malvern. The Singers enjoy a varied repertoire, with music from the 16th century to the present day, and often perform unaccompanied.
This programme is typically wide-ranging and comprises items covering all centuries in the period mentioned above. Music includes the haunting Crucifixus by Lotti, Ave Verum Corpus by Byrd, O Salutaris Hostia by Rossini, Songs of Farewell by Parry (of Jerusalem fame), The Long Day Closes by Sullivan (as in G&S), Abendlied by Rheinberger, beautiful works by contemporary composers Eleanor Daley, Judith Weir, John Scott and John Rutter, before ending with the stunningly uplifting O Radiant Dawn by James Macmillan. An afternoon of delightful music is promised and tea and cake are available afterwards.

She developed her interest in choral music in her first teaching post and has since worked as a choral animateur, leading projects and workshops throughout Worcestershire as well as further afield. Carol is passionate about all areas of music education and is a tutor with Buckingham University for PGCE students. She currently conducts The Hills Singers and Worcester Young Voices and also works as an examiner for the ABRSM.
