A weekend of musical contrasts

Sinfonia Verdi had a typically varied weekend. 

On Saturday 14 July we had well over  100 people on stage for Mendelssohn’s  Elijah with the choirs of St Albans Cathedral and St Albans Bach Choir – literally a resounding success in the glorious acoustics of St Albans Cathedral.

Soprano Rachel Nicholl’s has written an insightful blog  on the performance - “genuinely one of the best I have ever done” - that also has many more fascinating insights into the music profession! 

In complete contrast, on Sunday we had two people on stage: our wonderful clarinettists Stuart King and Massimo di Trolio gave Luton audiences an intimate insight into the clarinet family, its fascinating history, and beautiful repertoire in the elegant surroundings of the Drawing Room at Wardown House Museum and Art Gallery, Luton.
