Joining with Hurst Prep Choir for March event
Our headline piece in Songs to Inspire is John Rutter's wonderful Mass of the Children. Rutter was inspired to write this work after singing as a boy soprano in adult works such as Britten's War Requiem.
First performed in 2003 at Carnegie Hall, New York, Mass of the Children includes extensive sections for a children's choir, singing in up to three parts, plus adult chorus, soloists and instrumental musicians. By joining with Hurst Prep Chamber Choir for this work, we are offering children a similar opportunity to that of the young Rutter. He described his experience as 'life-changing'; we truly hope that for some of the Hurst children, their enjoyment is equally significant.
Sussex Chorus is a large, classical choir, that draws its membership from across Sussex. With four concerts a year, amateur singers from all walks of life enjoy rehearsing and performing a variety of choral works with a choir that is friendly and welcoming as well as aiming for high quality performances.
Potential members are always welcome to sing in a couple of rehearsals before making a decision to join.
