The Waynflete Singers celebrate their fiftieth anniversary with a Gala Concert which re-unites them with former conductors David Hill and Martin Neary. Both musicians have chosen to conduct works that reflect their own particular tastes, while at the same time showcasing the typically wide repertoire of the Waynfletes. Martin Neary’s long association with John Tavener will ensure a very special musical experience while David Hill’s love of English music will illuminate the magic of Vaughan Williams. Our baritone soloist, Roderick Williams, will also supply our choral commission and we are thrilled that he has agreed to act in this dual role for our fiftieth birthday celebration. Our current music director, Andrew Lumsden, will conduct this exciting venture and will also display his virtuoso organ skills in a work by Samuel Barber. The London Mozart Players will provide the orchestral accompaniment under the direction of David Hill – a unique opportunity to hear one Winchester Cathedral organist being accompanied by another!
