SPRING 2018

Mozart Requiem: Spring Concert, March 18th 2018, Town Hall Birmingham  (edition to be confirmed in September.)

There will be no Easter Concert in the Abbey in 2018 as this has been replaced by the Town Hall Concert in Birmingham.


Having organised a successful series of workshops in place of a later, light summer concert this year, the Committee will, with John's support and the benefit of a much longer lead time, explore various options for a more substantial programme in June 2018.
