Total Voice Chamber Choir joined the choirs from Blackheath Centre for singing for a joint concert of Brahms German Requiem on 30 March 2018. It was a return visit for our choir following our hosting of the Blackheath choirs for Faure’s Requiem last year.
The London traffic tried to thwart us, but our coach made it through and we had a fantastic rehearsal in the afternoon in the beautiful church of St Alfege in the middle of Greenwich.
Many of us adjourned to a local Italian restaurant between rehearsal and concert. Thank you to Maureen for organising that – it was a great choice.
The concert went brilliantly and the audience was very appreciative. This was a challenging piece and all the singers rose to the occasion.
The lovely Blackheath folk laid on a buffet for us all after the concert, with a live jazz band. Was that Mike Benge I spotted singing a number?
