Wooburn Singers Concert

Wooburn Singers is an auditioned chamber choir of about 50 singers in South Buckinghamshire. They were founded in 1967 by the late Richard Hickox to help raise funds for the Wooburn Parish Church. They sang at the inaugural concert of the Wooburn Festival.
Rehearsing in Beaconsfield, they perform four or five concerts per year in the area, ranging from a capella works to large choral pieces with orchestra. The choir goes on tour in Europe every other summer.
Directed by Jonathon Cole-Swinard who is also Music Director at Garsington Opera, the Wooburn Singers will be performing a centenary of choral gems from Faure and Bruckner.

Our first concert of the year on the 16th November 2024 ends the Wooburn Festival and celebrates the centenaries of Bruckner (200th anniversary of his birth) and Fauré (150th anniversary of his death) with two choral gems. The two major works for the evening will be Bruckner E minor Mass  and Fauré Messe Basse.  Bruckner’s Mass is scored for 8-part voices and unusually, brass.  The contrapuntal style is also of note.  The Fauré Messe Basse  is scored for 3 upper voices: soprano, soprano and alto and is a rare gem.
