Britten ‘War Requiem’

Roderick Williams Baritone

BRITTEN ‘WAR REQUIEM’

Newcastle Choral Society (NCS) was delighted to be the guest choir of Cleveland Philharmonic Choir (CPC), along with Northern Spirit Singers for this magnificent performance held in Sage One on Saturday 10th November 2018.

We joined the Choristers of Durham Cathedral and St Peter’s Church Stockton, Cleveland Philharmonic Junior Choir, and the Mowbray Orchestra. The acclaimed soloists were the magnificent baritone Roderick Williams, his voice deemed by an audience member to be ‘like melted chocolate’ wonderfully expressive tenor Mark Padmore and thrilling soprano Rachel Nicholls who sat amongst the choir. The Conductors were led by the commanding John Forsyth MBE, Gary Matthewman, and Daniel Cook, Master of the Choristers, Durham Cathedral. The details of the concert can be viewed here

A wonderful evening and a thrill to perform alongside CPC!

We sang to a hugely appreciative audience totalling 1111 and received rapturous applause as well as many post concert plaudits!

“fantastic, marvellous performance, most impressive, never boring. Well done!
