Orchestra joins choral society for concert
Published 24/03/14



THE Brandenburg Sinfonia have form as an orchestra fit for a king — or at least a king-in-waiting, writes Lesley Potter.

Their appearances include an international opera gala conducted by Richard Bonynge in the presence of Prince Charles.

Next Saturday they will be appearing with Henley Choral Society in a concert featuring the Fauré Requiem and Poulenc’s Gloria.

Henley Choral Society’s music director, Benjamin Goodson said: “The Brandenburg Sinfonia draws together some of the best players from the best-known London orchestras.

“They are very experienced at accompanying choirs, and I’m hugely excited to be bringing them to Henley to add their musical excellence to that of our soloists and chorus.”


As well as its renowned work in the UK, the Brandenburg Sinfonia is also in great demand abroad and in recent years has visited France, America, Bermuda, the Channel Islands, Barbados, Cyprus, Malta and St Petersburg. The orchestra has worked with artists of international standing including Yvonne Kenny, Emmanuel Hurwitz and Lesley Garrett.

The orchestra will be joined by the 100-strong chorus as well as soloists Elizabeth Cragg, soprano, and Lawrence White, bass.

The society’s chairman Melissa Maple added: “Ben’s first concert as music director was sold out, and tickets for this gorgeous programme are going fast. Please do buy your tickets as soon as possible to ensure you don’t miss out.”

• Henley Choral Society’s spring concert will take place at St Mary’s Church, Henley on Saturday, March 29 at 7.30pm. Tickets £16, U18s £10 from Jan French on (01491) 572795 or Gorvett & Stone, Duke Street, Henley. Visit www.henleychoralsociety.org.uk for more information.
