Go back to normal view
At Edward's suggestion, in place of choir practice on 12 February 2018, there will be a coach trip to Ripon Cathedral to hear top baritone, Roderick Williams, sing Schubert's song cycle Winterreise accompanied by equally top pianist Iain Burnside.
If you don't know Winterreise, it is a series of songs that is hard to describe without putting you off completely but sung by a true master singer is exquisite and leaves you emotionally drained for several hours. Roderick Williams is such a truly great singer that I was planning to miss choir to go to this concert in any case.
A first coach will leave Richmond School at 5.15pm (You can leave cars at the school for the evening) to enjoy a pre-concert meal at the Old Deanery Restaurant at 6.00pm before the concert. A two-course meal will be £15 payable to the restaurant.
A second coach will leave from Richmond School at 6.30pm and go straight to the Cathedral.
You can leave cars at the school for the evening and the coach and ticket package for either option will be £29.
This trip is open to all, not just choir members. Please indicate your interest here We need to have an idea of numbers by the end of November if possible but it will be possible to add or pull out later if necessary.
