Have your say

ONE of the nation’s finest amateur choirs is coming to Denmead.

The Renaissance Choir will be performing at All Saints Church, off Hambledon Road.

Gill Barge, one of the organisers, said it is shaping up to be one of the highlights of the year in the village.

She said: ‘The choir has performed in many prestigious venues in Europe, including Notre-Dame in Paris, Chartres Cathedral and Versailles, and we’re delighted that they are now coming to Denmead.

‘Like its professional counterpart, “The Sixteen”, the choir’s repertoire imaginatively balances unaccompanied choral music from the Renaissance period with 19th and 20th century works.

‘Although relatively small in number, the choir is accomplished in singing music in both double and triple choir form.’

The concert takes place at 7.30pm on Saturday, June 9. Tickets are £8 and include refreshments of strawberries and cream, wine or soft drink.

For tickets call Mrs Barge on (023) 9226 8565.
