A chorus is celebrating its 100th Anniversary with a birthday concert on June 17 at Southwark Cathedral.
The concert by City Chorus was planned in 2020. They will perform Mozart’s Coronation Mass and Ave Verum Corpus, and Handel’s anthems My Heart is Inditing and Zadok the Priest.
The City Chorus started in 1920 as a choir set up by staff of the National Provincial Bank, as it was then known. From the first, it was a significant London musical group, attracting distinguished soloists and performing the core classical repertoire.
Paul Ayres studied music at Oxford University and now works freelance as a composer and arranger, choral conductor & musical director, and organist & accompanist.
In addition to directing City Chorus, he conducts London College of Music Chorus, and several workplace choirs. Paul has received over one hundred commissions for new works, and he particularly enjoys “re-composing” classical works in various styles, and creating classical versions of pop and rock music.
