Concert: Midsomer Music with Divertimento
Prior Park Chapel, Ralph Allen Drive, Bath, BA2 5AH
Saturday 23 June 4.30pm followed by prosecco, strawberries and cream on the chapel steps
Our summer concert takes place in the inspiring setting of Prior Park Chapel on the afternoon of June 23rd. We are delighted to be teaming up with a choir called Divertimento, who are based in Warwickshire. Andrew Mock is one of their singers but in a previous life sang with Paragon and was Head of Music at Prior Park College from 1980 to 1990. The music will be a varied programme of both sacred and secular pieces, including two of Benjamin Britten’s Flower Songs, Ralph Vaughan William’s enchanting setting of Greensleeves, pieces by Brahms, Holst, Monteverdi and Guerrero. There are no tickets but there will be a retiring collection in aid of the organ fund in the chapel. As if that were not enticing enough we shall be serving strawberries and prosecco on the steps of the Mansion House after the concert, along with the best view in Bath.
