Concert Review by Robin Gregory : Check out the ‘News’ pageAmbition pays off for All Saints Choral Concert
“...Conductor Jozik Kotz, and organist Colin Hughes, drew magnificent singing from every part of the choir. Whether the demand was for a whispered pianissimo
or a blazing forte, it was forthcoming. Whether the text was in German, Russian or English, everything was clear, audible and balanced. ....” Read more
Christmas concert: ‘Come Travel For a Carol’ - Friday 16th December
Our annual Carol Concert this year has the title ‘Come Travel For a Carol’ and features carols and Christmas songs from around the world. This is always one of our most popular events and a perfect way to start Christmas.
Once again we’ll be having wine and mince pies in the interval, and this year our chosen charity is Eastbourne RNLI.
Please note that, in a break with tradition because of the way Christmas falls this year, this event is on a Friday!
Come and join us and get in the festive spirit.
We are a choir of about 65 singers based in Hailsham, East Sussex.
We perform at least four main concerts during the year, with programmes featuring anything from Bach (Christmas Oratorio, St. John Passion) to Beatles, Rossini (Petite Messe Solennelle) to Gershwin, Rutter (Requiem, Magnificat, carols) to Rogers and Hart.
We’re a sociable lot too, music workshops, coffee mornings, quizzes, even the odd pint of beer or glass of wine (or two)!
If you’re looking for a fast way to increase your circle of friends, as well as an opportunity to sing hugely enjoyable music go to the ‘Join Us’ page.
Our 55th Year !!!
You can find references to a choral group in Hailsham from the early 1930s, but it faded from view during the war - they probably had even more troubles recruiting tenors and basses then! The present Society was founded in 1961, so we are now in our 55th year and still going from strength to strength.
We would like to acknowledge the generous support of Hailsham Town Council who have assisted us with a Grant.
