FOLLOWING the success of MazeMusic in March, Saffron Walden Choral Society is hosting a Summer Prom entitled ‘Jubilee’ at St Mary’s Church Saffron Walden on Saturday June 16, at 7.30pm.
In celebration of the Diamond Jubilee, the choir performs a rousing programme of royal music, including Mozart’s Coronation Mass, Handel’s Coronation Anthems: Zadok the Priest and The King Shall Rejoice, along with Walton’s Coronation Te Deum and other proms favourites.
Choral classics such as Parry’s I was glad and Jerusalem begin the Prom-style finale. There will be plenty of opportunity to join in the choruses and wave a Union Jack.
Janet Wheeler conducts, and the choir is accompanied by the New Professionals Orchestra and Richard Carr on organ and keyboard.
Internationally acclaimed soprano and Walden resident Ann-Helen Moen is joined by a team of young professional soloists - Carris Jones (mezzo) Benedict Hymas (tenor) and Philip Tebb (bass).
