Singers from Tormead have been invited to sing with over 300 other performers in a special community charity concert in aid of the Rainbow Trust at Guildford Cathedral on May 23rd.
Singing as ‘Rowan’s Choir’ we will be part of an 80-strong children’s choir performing alongside Guildford’s Vivace Chorus, the Salisbury Community Choir, the Vasari Singers and professional orchestra, Southern Pro Musica.
The Rainbow Trust works with the family of international composer Will Todd, who lives in Guildford. Will’s daughter, Rowan, has needed the support of the charity for several years, and it is a privilege to be part of her dedicated choir for this event, where we will also be singing one of Will’s pieces, The City Garden. With jazzy beats, beautiful tunes and moving music, this will be a very special event for the local community and we are delighted to be part of the concert.
Tormead Choir was honoured to welcome composer Bob Chilcott and conductor Jeremy Backhouse, along with pupils from George Abbot School for a rehearsal for the forthcoming performance of Bob Chilcott’s ‘Salisbury Vespers’ as part of A Concert For Rowan
