choirAfter months of fundraising, planning and a year of rehearsing, the Somerville College Choir will soon fly to New York to begin their tour of America.

Beginning on Monday the 29th August at Trinity Church Wall Street, the choir will travel across the North-East of America ending up in Arlington VA., giving concerts, workshops and services.  Expect to hear renditions from their sold-out performance of Bach’s St John Passion, their concert of Anglo-American Music and their most recent performance of Tallis’s Spem in Alium, which they performed previously in London’s prestigious venue St Martin-in-the-Fields.
