Our Performance of Gerontius

Magnificent moustaches have been helping choir members to get their mojo working for our November
concert, which features Elgarís dramatic and beautiful oratorio The Dream of Gerontius.

Elgarís moustache was one of the most luxurious in British classical music, and some of our tenors
and basses have been sporting the Elgar look in tribute to the great English composer.

The choir is also supporting the national ĎMovemberí campaign, which encourages men to grow
moustaches during November to raise awareness of menís cancers.

The concert, at St Johnís Church, Boxmoor, on Saturday November 12, will be conducted by our
Music Director Stephen Jones. Stephen is also the founder and Music Director of the City Chamber
Choir, who will be joining us for this performance to create a chorus of more than 80 voices.

The choirs will be accompanied by Hertfordshire Chamber Orchestra, and we have three fantastic
soloists:  mezzo soprano Sophie Mansell, tenor Peter Davoren and bass Jon Saunders.
