CHESTER Music Society Youth Choir is celebrating some of the music that was especially written for the choir during the last 24 years, at their annual summer concert on Saturday (July 7) at All Saint’s Church in Hoole.
The choir has previously commissioned music from composers such as Bob Chilcott, Ronald Corp and local composer Brian Hughes and more recently has had music written for the choir by Phillip Cooke.
The concert will feature a number of the pieces which will be sung by the Youth Choir and the Alumni Choir while the younger Preludes will join the final piece which is another new work by Phillip Cooke called Far Away Music.
Far Away Music is based on the popular children’s book Wind in the Willows and will have its premiere at the concert.
Louie McIver, a member of the youth choir, was commissioned to write a piece for the choir and Beautiful Soup will also premiere at the concert.
The concert starts at 7.30pm and the tickets are £7 with concessions for under 18s and over 60s. There will also be refreshments.
