Farewell to Patrick Larley

Our ‘Taste of Vienna’ concert on 9th July will bring to an end Patrick Larley’s 11 years as  Music Director of Birmingham Festival Choral Society. We hope that you will be able to come and share our last Birmingham concert conducted by Patrick.

The choir has really benefited from Patrick’s  weekly tuition in singing technique, and we have appreciated his unfailing courtesy and good humour in rehearsals. We have sung some wonderful concerts under his direction, with a wide range of choral music in many lovely venues.

The final event will be our choir tour to Burgundy, when Patrick will conduct us in concerts in Auxerre, St Julien du Sault and Vezeley. What a lovely way to finish!

BFCS sang Mozart’s  Coronation Mass and Ave Verum Corpus, accompanied by Queen’s Park Sinfonia.

We were delighted to sing again with our Birmingham Conservatoire soloists:Robert Tilson, Elouise Waterhouse, Lucinda Scott and Alistair Donaghue.
