Pennine Spring Music Festival Pennine Spring Music St Thomas's Church, Heptonstall (map)
Pennine Spring Music festival is a friendly annual music festival which takes place in the beautiful setting of Heptonstall, a pretty village in the Pennines hidden high above Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire. Our one week choral and orchestral gathering provides a challenging and inspiring environment for members to prepare for three concerts open to the general public. Singers in all parts are especially needed this year to participate in our exciting programme which includes choral works by composers as varied as Chilcott, Poulenc, Hamlish, Porter and Mozart. Singers may participate on either a residential or a day-to-day basis. Singers are expected to feel comfortable with sight reading, but to have familiarised themselves with the music in advance.

To see the full programme for the week and to apply to take part in the festival, please visit the website.

Mahler Symphony No. 8, ‘Symphony of a Thousand’ St George's Singers Bridgewater Hall (map)
The Symphony No. 8 by Gustav Mahler is one of the largest-scale choral works in the classical repertoire, its huge instrumental and vocal forces giving it the nickname ‘Symphony of a Thousand’. The last of Mahler’s works to be premiered in his lifetime, it is proof of his position as one of the most visionary and ambitious composers of the romantic era. In 2019, the 50th Anniversary of Chetham’s School of Music, St George’s Singers joins with Chetham’s Chorus and Symphony Orchestra under the baton of their Director of Music, Stephen Threlfall, in a performance of this astounding work.
