Advance Notice of a Verdi Requiem ‘Sing Day’and performance

Advance Notice of a Verdi Requiem ‘Sing Day’and performance  – Saturday 9th March 2013.

The Clonter Farm Music Trust are inviting singers to a Sing Day in Congleton to practice and then perform the Verdi Requiem.


Hi there

Due to the over-whelming enthusiasm for this year's SING for CLONTER, we have been emboldened to take on the magnificent Verdi Requiem on 9th March 2013 and I wondered if any of your members might be interested to join us.

I have attached a collage of the last Sing Day & Evening Performance along with a poster and application form for next years event.  Philip Sunderland has agreed to lead and conduct this glorious work assisted by Christopher Cromar who both supported us so wonderfully last year.

We hope to have over 200 members in a combined Sing for Clonter chorus in March accompanied by 4 professional soloists and 46 members of the KEMS orchestra.   We will be using Ricordi - Dunn Edition scores and can supply a copy to anyone who does not have this edition so that we can all refer to the same bar numbers.

Our Box Office Manager is primed to take bookings for The Verdi Requiem over the phone on 01260 224 514 or you can just fill in the attached application form and send it in with a cheque.

Timetable for 9th March will be: Registration -10.30 am  Performance - 6.30 pm with an optional post performance supper at 8 pm

For those wishing to stay for a bit after the performance there will be a licensed bar, you can bring a picnic OR there will be a Pie Supper for £10 - menu on the application form.   This will need to be pre-ordered and paid for along with the ticket.   Pie Supper tables can be booked for groups of two, four, 6, 8 or 12.  If anyone wishes to come on their own they are welcome to join our Friend's table.   Chilled drinks can be pre-ordered from the bar for after the performance.

There will be picnic tables available inside the theatre for those wishing to bring their own food but it will be a case of sharing on a first come first served basis and really sitting wherever you lay your hat for lunch!!

Do please pass on the attached to anyone you think would be interested.  There will be a limited number of audience seats.

There is more information on our website too but it is quicker to download the attached

Do email me if you require any further information  or call 07947 837 580
I do hope some of your members might like to join us.   It should be a lot of fun but I think we might blow the roof off!!

Best wishes
