A group of Intermediate and Senior Choir singers performed with FCMG Patron Malcolm Singer at his 70th Birthday Celebration concert at West London Synagogue. They sang movements from his football oratorio ‘Perfect Pitch’ alongside a group of highly distinguished professional musicians. Our singers enjoyed swapping out their usual FCMG uniform for football shirts!
Members of our Senior and Chamber Choir participated in a ‘Come and Sing’ workshop led by renowned conductor Laurence Cummings. The singers explored Handel’s famous Coronation Anthems in St George’s Church in Hanover Square, Central London – the very church where Handel was based for many years in the 17th Century!
A packed church at All Hallows in Gospel Oak was treated on Sunday 11 December to the complete range of choirs run by FCMG in a festive programme including brass playing and audience carol participation. The Beginner choir welcomed Father Christmas and Jack Frost in a suite of sweetly sung songs before the Intermediate singers treated us to some beautiful part singing in Alexander L’Estrange’s Winter Songsas well as more traditional carol arrangements. The Senior Choir processed around the church as they introduced us to Britten’s famousCeremony of Carols in an atmospheric and stylishly assured performance. And the Chamber singers were stunning in a wonderful set from Poulenc to Howells including some breathtaking solos. Simply a perfect start to Christmas and a celebration of the work of Grace Rossiter, Rebecca Lodge Birkbaek and Hannah King that made every parent there happy and proud.
