SINFONIA CHORALE is a prodigiously talented choir based in and around Nottinghamshire. (Roderic Dunnett, Church Times: for full report click here.)
2013 - 14 Season
Parry's Songs of Farewell
Completed in his last year, this swansong is a work of great beauty and profundity. One or two of the six songs of the set are fairly well-known, eg My soul, there is a country, but the larger-scale, more complex later songs are rarely done.
These will form the centrepiece of both the Come and Sing on 18th January, and the Spring Concert on 15th March.

About the Sinfonia Chorale
The Sinfonia Chorale is recognised as one of the leading small choirs in the East Midlands.
The choir was formed in 1966 as the English Sinfonia Chorale, and since 1991 Richard Roddis has been its Director. In that time it has enhanced its reputation for fine, expressive and exciting choral singing, and for ambitious and innovative programming. Several concerts are given every year in Nottingham and the East Midlands.
The choir has around forty members including professional musicians and amateur instrumentalists.
