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.
- Concert: Shakespeare’s Jazz
We are performing this programme twice: on 21st June at St Lawrence’s Church, West Wycombe, and in Oxford one week later on 28th June at St Michael at the North Gate on Cornmarket Street. Tickets are now available – see the individual concert pages for details.
- 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.
Our CDs are £5 each. We can’t currently accept on-line payment for CDs (watch this space), but 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.
