A Passion for Passions - Saturday 20 January 2024
Make a resolution to sing more in the New Year by spending Saturday 20 January with Reading Bach Choir in their workshop day "A Passion for Passions."
Choirs across the world will sing the famous Passions from the repertoire come March and April, and this is a chance to get ahead on the most well-known choruses and chorales from Bach's timeless St Matthew and St John Passions.
The workshop will trace the history of the Passion as a musical form and genre, exploring the traditions that influenced Bach and looking at the music that he inspired.
Music and refreshments are included in your ticket and the day will wrap up with an informal performance for friends and family.
10am - 4.30pm Caversham Heights Methodist Church, 74 Highmoor Road, Caversham RG4 7BG
All welcome. Tickets are £25 which includes music and tea/coffee. Please make your own arrangements for lunch.

We are recruiting
This accomplished choir performs a wide range of choral music, ancient and modern, with a particular focus on challenging and rewarding new music. Recent concerts have included works by Caroline Shaw, Reena Esmail, Margaret Bonds and Saunder Choi as well as more familiar composers such as Byrd, Tomkins, Vaughan Williams and of course J.S. Bach. We recently performed an exhilerating UK premier of Kile Smith's The Arc in the Sky.
We are looking for new members with a high standard of singing and musicianship who are interested in challenging themselves musically in a friendly and aspirational environment, led by our Music Director Daniel Mahoney. If that sounds like you, please come and join us for a few rehearsals to try us out. If you enjoy the experience and want to stay with us, we will arrange a short audition.
We rehearse on Tuesdays at 7.30pm in St Andrews Church, Caversham RG4 7PL.
If you are interested, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the 'Sing with Us' tab at the top of this page and select 'Join the Choir' and 'FAQs'.
