Cantamus Reigate News
Welcome to Cantamus Reigate’s website! Here you can find out all about this friendly, mixed-voice (SATB) choir, how it operates, its forthcoming events and how you can take part.
We had a ball at our 20th Anniversary Concert on 11th November. Have a look at some photos on our “gallery” page, and listen to some sound clips on our “sound clips” page. We were very pleased to be able to donate the healthy sum of £800 to Awards for Young Musicians, the charity we were supporting.
Our next event isn’t really ours, but many of our number will be “changing hats” to come and sing in the Come and Sing afternoon organised by the Reigate & Redhill Music and Drama Festival Chorus on Saturday 3rd February. We’ll be singing the Vivaldi Gloria plus some other fun pieces. Nick Landauer will be directing with Charles Thompson accompanying. It all happens in Reigate Park Church, registration starting at 12.30. Please see the Festival Syllabus at www.rrmdf.org.uk for details. You can “enter” for the Festival Chorus (and all the other Festival Sections) from 1st January, although we will accept Adult Chorus entries on the day. However, we would prefer you to sign-up in advance. This year, for the first time we’re also running a Junior Chorus event for Years 5 and 6 in parallel. Singers for the Junior Chorus will only be accepted in advance. The Junior Chorus will be led by Marcin Szymczyk and accompanied by Sonia Dembinska. Junior repertoire is being planned. Both Choruses will come together at the end of the afternoon for an informal performance.
