Full Programme

 

To celebrate their half century, Summertown Choral Society took their audience on a journey through England’s choral tradition on Saturday night – a journey that also reflected the incredibly varied repertoire they have tackled over the years…

…this was an interesting wander down memory lane, and a triumphant way to mark their anniversary.
