Verdi:

Requiem

 

The Vivace Chorus returns to the Royal Albert Hall, after the sell-out success of its Mahler 8 performance in 2011, with a grand-scale performance of Verdi’s Requiem.

Once again, we are working with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and our massed choir of 400 voices includes the Wimbledon Choral Society, the Twickenham Choral Society and the London Philharmonic Choir. With these talented forces and excellent soloists under the baton of conductor Jeremy Backhouse, this Verdi Requiem will be a thrilling live musical experience.

The sound the chorus made was electrifying and the whole symphony unforgettable.” Audience member, Mahler 8, May 2011.

Thank You To All

Can we extend our thanks to all involved in the phenomenal performance of Verdi Requiem at the Royal Albert Hall on 18th May 2014.

Please see below for some photos from the concert.

We Did It

Thank you, thank you, thank you

for your generous support of the Singing Cyclists. They successfully completed cycling over 200 miles through some sun, lots of rain and - given the number of punctures - buckets of nails to reach the Royal Albert Hall on 28th April 2014. The total raised so far is over £9000! See the slideshow.

Everyone Can Sing!

We’ve all seen Gareth Malone turn office workers and reluctant teenagers into cohesive, dedicated groups of committed singers.  We are used to the idea that singing makes us feel good, gives us as big a buzz as a trip to the gym or a cross-country run, but we all lead increasingly busy lives and find it hard to squeeze even all the essentials into our weekly routine.   The Vivace Chorus is testament to the fact that busy folk can always find room for something extra special!

Sponsorship

We would like to invite you to sponsor an exciting event at the Royal Albert Hall. The Vivace Chorus will be joining with The London Philharmonic Choir, Wimbledon Choral Society and Twickenham Choral Society with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for a performance of Verdi's Requiem.
