2015 Concerts

The Age of Choirs


Saturday, 21 March 2015




St George’s Church, B15 3DQ



Simon Halsey is joined by two talented student conductors for this concert which brings together three of the University’s choirs for an abridged history of choral chamber music.

The Music Society’s female voices chamber choir perform a programme from the Baroque period (c. 1600 – c.1750) before passing the baton to the mixed voices chamber choir as they take us into the Classical and Romantic eras (c. 1750 – c. 1900). Bringing the programme to modern day will be the award-winning University Women’s Choir who will perform choral works from the 20th century, written entirely by female composers.
