Wooburn Singers is the premier chamber choir in South Buckinghamshire. Rehearsing in Beaconsfield, we perform four or five concerts per year in the area, ranging from a cappella works to large choral pieces with orchestra.
- That Yongë Child – SOLD OUT
Wooburn Singers return to St Mary’s Beaconsfield to present their traditional Christmas concert, with well-known carols for the audience to join in, interspersed with some new pieces chosen by our Music Director, Tom Hammond-Davies, with which the choir will dazzle you with its virtuosity.
In the past some of our audience members have said that it doesn’t feel as if Christmas has begun until they’ve heard the Wooburn Singers start the festivities! And don’t forget that you can buy our new CD A Vision of Light, and Wooburn Singers at Christmas is still available. (For details of all our recordings click on the Recordings page.)
We’re sorry, but this concert is now sold out, and sales on the door will be on a standby basis only.
- New CD released
Wooburn Singers are delighted to announce the release of a new compilation CD, A Vision of Light. In June 2013 as part of our farewell to our Music Director Greg Beardsell the choir gave the premiere of a new work by Gabriel Jackson, Three prayers, with a vision of light. The work was commissioned by the choir to mark Greg’s 8 years with us, and the CD includes the first performance. Also included is a selection of a cappella pieces recorded at our concerts under Greg’s direction in the last two years. For more details, see the Recordings page.
Also still available are two earlier compilations, Calm Me, O Lord: Wooburn Singers in Concert and Wooburn Singers at Christmas.
The new CD costs £10, and the two earlier ones £6 each; or you can buy all three for £20. We can’t currently accept on-line payment for CDs (watch this space), but we will be selling them at our Christmas concert, That Yönge Child. Alternatively, copies can be ordered from choir members, or via the Contact form (£2.00 per order for postage and packing).
- Meet the Woobies!
The September 2013 edition of Buckinghamshire Life magazine has a front-page feature entitled Meet the Woobies – one big tuneful family, written by choir member Jenny Atkinson.
