The concert programme includes choral and organ works by Bach, Purcell, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Tallis and Byrd.

This concert provides a ‘not-to-be-missed’ opportunity for music lovers to hear the choir before it embarks on its European tour of Switzerland and Germany.

Trinity College Choir were recently voted ‘5th best choir in the world’ by Gramaphone magazine. See for more details.

An estimated total of £165,000 is needed for the works.
