Saffron Hall, Saffron Walden

Saffron Walden Choral Society and the Bishop’s Stortford Sinfonia celebrate the music of “La Serenissima” in a programme of choral classics and concerti grossi encompassing iconic works by Monteverdi, Gabrieli, their pupil, Schütz and Vivaldi.

We invite you to join us for an evening to celebrate the music of this great city, with performances of Vivaldi's Double Trumpet Concerto in C major and as a finale, his enduringly popular Gloria. In between, we go on a grand tour to visit other great Italian composers of this era including performances of:

  • Monteverdi Beatus Vir
  • Gabrieli Jubilate Deo
  • Schütz Jauchzet dem Herrn
  • Marcello Oboe Concerto in D minor

We are joined by Bishop's Stortford Sinfonia and are delighted to introduce three talented young soloists, sopranos Daisy Brown and Nia Coleman and mezzo soprano Heather Lowe.

Tickets are priced from £10 to £28 with under 25's or Students £5 and under 18's £3. They can be bought from Saffron Hall via the link below, from Saffron Walden TIC or on the door (subject to availability).
