WHOOPS - The website is being re-constructed!

Apologies to all our readers. The US based company which provides web services for Cleveland Philharmonic Choir has had a major crash of its systems (not thought to be Trump or Putin related). It is in the process of restoring all of the websites which it hosts, including ours. Meanwhile, please keep checking here for news about our rehearsal schedule and our concerts.

Our most recent concert.....

Behold the Sea!

Saturday 31st July, 7.30pm,

The Borough Hall, Hartlepool

Cleveland Philharmonic Choir

Mowbray Orchestra

Conductor: John Forsyth

Under the auspices of the Hartlepool Tall Ships Races 2010, being held in August, our next concert presents three pieces of English music from the first half of the twentieth century, all of which were inspired by the sea:

Britten’s four magnificent orchestral ‘Sea Interludes’ from his first opera Peter Grimes

Elgar’s haunting song cycle Sea Pictures, sung by mezzo-soprano Anna Stephany (England’s representative in the 2009 BBC Radio 3 Cardiff Singer of the World competition -

Vaughan Williams’s stirring Sea Symphony for large chorus and orchestra, and two solo voices –

Madeleine Pierard (soprano) and Dawid Kimberg (baritone) who represented South Africa the 2009 BBC Radio 3 Cardiff Singer of the World competition

The Sea Symphony was first heard in Leeds Town Hall on 12th October 1910, conducted by the composer. This performance thus not only welcomes the Tall Ships to the region, but also celebrates the work’s centenary.
