Royal Free Singers 45th Anniversary Prom with Enfield Citadel Band

Overview

Windsor Parish Church, Saturday 23rd June 2018, 7:30pm

From its origins in 1973, when Ben Gunner, then a geography teacher at the former Royal Free Boys School, formed a small choir of staff and parents, the Royal Free Singers has grown to become a 100-plus community choir, serving the wider Windsor area and dedicated to performing the best of choral music, both the familiar and the less well known.

The choir is very pleased to be joined on this anniversary occasion by the celebrated Enfield Citadel Band of the Salvation Army, who will be performing works from their brass band repertoire as well as accompanying the choir in the late Ray Steadman-Allen’s up-tempo Salvationist ‘Age of Rockets’ and in popular prom favourites for audience participation such as Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory. The concert will also include well- loved opera choruses like Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances and the Easter Hymn from Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, and Fauré’s gentle Cantique de Jean Racine.
