Programme 2011

April 16th 2011 was a beautiful Spring day and Burgate Church was packed with an enthusiastic audience, crowding in to hear Haydnís The Seasons. The performance, by the Burgate Singers of this much Ėloved work was acclaimed by audience and critics alike.  On April 28th, they travelled to London, to St Jamesí Piccadilly to perform Handelís Alcina, arriving back in Diss at 1am after another hugely successful performance.
Their next concert will be at 7.30pm on December 3rd at the Corn Hall in Diss Ė everyoneís fingers tightly crossed, that there will be no repeat of last yearís icy blizzards that turned Diss into a ghost town. This yearís concert will feature the hugely popular Mozart Requiem, which music-lovers can never hear too often. The other work will be Respighiís Laud to the Nativity, a brief, beautiful, pastoral work, depicting Jesusí birth as the shepherds would have seen it.

  If you love music and singing  and like a challenge do come and join us. There are no auditions. You donít have to be able to sight-read. Donít sit at home saying I used to love singing, but I havenít done any for ages. Come along a give it a try. Youíll be guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome. Youíll be surprised at what you can achieve. And youíll have the enormous pleasure of learning and performing wonderful music, under the expert guidance of our conductor, Alain Judd.
