We have not one but two upcoming concerts!
On Saturday 2nd July at 7.30pm we will be performing our summer concert at St Dunstan and All Saints in Stepney featuring lots of wonderful music including Monteverdi Madrigals and Vaughan Williams Three Shakespeare Songs. All proceeds will go towards Save Your Queens Head. The Queen’s Head is our fab local pub in Limehouse which is unfortunately under threat – follow the link for more details. Please come and support the concert and the local community, and if you can, consider pledging towards the cause yourself! If you’ve ever enjoyed a post-concert drink with us there I’m sure you’ll agree it is worth it!

Weelkes: When David Heard
Dering: Factum est Silentium
Lobo: Versa est in luctum

Thames Chamber Choir presents a festive selection of traditional Advent and Christmas carols, accompanied by harp. With music from as far afield as Denmark and Estonia, as well as from Germany and Britain, this programme is united by the sense of musical and textual traditions on which each piece uniquely draws. Sources such as chorales, plainsong, carols, and folk tunes, spanning seven centuries from the thirteenth to the nineteenth, variously inform and inspire this range of seasonal choral music.

Our next concert, 24th October at Conway Hall, is an exciting collaboration between artist Alfred Huckett and composer Andrew Campling – both of whom are already an integral part of TCC as 2nd bass and conductor!
Parallel Journeys is a concert which combines a new exhibition of artworks from Alfred Huckett created between 2010-2015, all based on music. His recent work is a series completed this year derived from two pieces of plainsong, Ave maris stella and Stabat mater. These two anthems were chosen as motifs both by Alfred Huckett and Andrew Campling as a joint project in which to form paintings and music. Andrew Campling’s new work ‘Ave Maris Stella’ is based on the extraordinary life-journey of Mary, the mother of Jesus. The music incorporates two plainsong themes: ‘Ave maris stella’ (Hail, thou star of the sea’) and ‘Stabat mater dolorosa’, (the mother stands weeping). The work is for soprano solo, chorus and strings.
