Heptonstall, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire HX7 7NS
This summer concert will be Alison West’s last concerts as MD after 16 years directing the choir, and another 17 years singing with the Hepton Singers before that. So it seems only fitting that she has chosen some of her favourite pieces for the choir to sing to bid her farewell.
Alison writes: ‘the music we shall sing for these concerts is a wonderful mix of Renaissance and contemporary repertoire. It will include Renaissance music by Guerrero, Tallis and Victoria, and more modern music by James MacMillan, Howard Skempton, Judith Weir, Galina Grigorjeva, Geoff Adams, and a complete re-working of my own piece Rehearsing the Languages of Birds.’
An evening not to be missed. Put it in your diary now!
