Future Concerts

Our planned concerts for 2024 & into 2025....


Saturday 16th November 2024 at 4pm

Teesside High School, 

Whitbourn: Son of God Mass
Brahms: Requiem (with piano accompaniment)

Cleveland Philharmonic Choir & Soloists Sam Hird (baritone), Anna Dias (soprano) and Matthew Politz (Clarinet)

Conductor: John Forsyth MBE

Experience the choir’s first performance at Teesside High School, with its comfortable balcony for audience, giving a good view of the action.  It’s an afternoon concert which we feel is more attractive at this time of year.
The Whitbourn piece, lasting just over 20 minutes, may be new to you.  It was loved by the audience when it was performed in Durham a few years ago.  Composed in 2001, it features an amazing saxophone part (we are using a clarinet, which works well). The instrument soars above the choir, giving  an eastern, almost jazzy feel, The choir sings the words of the mass, sensitively set using harmonies which are easy on the ear,
After the interval, when tea and coffee will be served, we perform the Brahms Requiem in the version accompanied by piano, played by the four hands of skilful pianists Alison Gill and Andrew Christer.  We will sing in English, words which plead for the peace of the souls of the departed and comfort for those who grieve,
