Join us for our eagerly anticipated Centenary!

A Happy New Year and welcome to our Centenary Year! The exciting programme includes Bach’s B minor Mass, Mozart’s C minor Mass, and two new commissions – Iain Farrington’s Then Sing We All as well as local Twickenham resident Roxanna Panufnik’s Wild Musick. In March, we head to Cadogan Hall for Mendelssohn’s Elijah, the very first work ever sung in concert by the Twickenham Musical Society, as it was then, exactly one hundred years ago.

Prospective new members are welcome to contact joining@twickenhamchoral.org.uk – you will be very welcome.

Needless to say, the Choir is taking all reasonable measures to keep our rehearsal and performance spaces safe for singers and audience, concentrating on good ventilation, generously spaced seating, longer breaks and so on.

We have a Facebook page, and you can also follow @twickchoral on Twitter.

Centenary concert

  • MENDELSSOHN: Elijah
    With
  • David Soar (bass)
  • Janice Watson (soprano)
  • Miranda Westcott (mezzo soprano)
  • Dean Power (tenor)
  • Brandenburg Sinfonia

Exactly 100 years from their first public performace, singing this very piece, Twickenham Choral kick off their Centenary celebrations with Mendelssohn's ever-popular masterpiece.

Never out of fashion, this intense, operatic Biblical oratorio vividly depicts Elijah's confrontations with the priests of Baal, King Ahab, Queen Jezebel and even God himself, climaxing in a fiery horse-drawn chariot.

For imaginative orchestration, flamboyant characterisation, dramatic impetus and sheer beauty of the music, Elijah is justifiably an absolute favourite of the choral repertoire for singers and audience alike.
