The Sheffield Chorale spring concert is entitled ‘Something old, something new’ reflecting both the changes within the Chorale and the choice of music. Having said farewell to its most recent conductor at Christmas and awaiting the arrival of a new conductor, the choir is taking this opportunity to present a varied selection of favourite music, chosen by choir members from the vast repertoire which the choir has performed in the past, incorporating both sacred and secular, early and contemporary works. This has provided quite an eclectic ‘mixed bag’ offering something for everyone. In addition to the wealth of part songs for which the Sheffield Chorale has long been renowned, the choir will also be singing John Rutter’s ‘Five Childhood Lyrics’ in its entirety. Many of you will remember ‘The owl and the pussy cat’ and ‘Sing a song of sixpence’, but the choir has never yet performed the complete work. The choir is delighted to be conducted by its Assistant Musical Director, Kevin Haighton and accompanied by Linda Wareham.

Another ‘new’ aspect of this performance will be the venue as the choir is being welcomed for the first time by STC Sheffield which is located in Crookes, S10 1UL.
