Concerts in 2021/22
After too long away, KCS is ready to sing for you again in 2021/22. With two performances of some of your favourite choral music on the program for this season, and with the understanding that things may have to go on hold once again, the choir is eager to welcome music lovers back to The Spire for more beautiful music, beautifully sung. Our performance of Handel’s Messiah, originally scheduled for November 28, has been postponed to Nov 27, 2022.

Bach, and of course some traditional carols.
Proof of vaccination will be required, audience must be masked, limited seating available. We are sorry that children under 12 will not be able to attend, due to vaccination requirements. Streaming tickets are available.

Brahms chose the text of his great German Requiem consciously in the vernacular of his country, so those who first introduced it to London decided to pay homage to his ideals and perform it in English, with Brahms’s own piano (four hands) accompaniment.
Featuring the choir, accompanied by Clare Marion and Emily McPherson.
