The Seasons by Tchaikovsky was commenced shortly after the premiere of his First Piano Concerto, and continued while he was completing his first ballet, Swan Lake. “June (Barcarolle in G Minor)” is reflective, depicting the lilting journey of a gondola on still waters…a great way to calmly start the summer after a hectic season.
The Brecon Singers was founded as the Brecon Cathedral Singers in 1966 by the then Cathedral’s Director of Music, David Gedge, providing an opportunity for the people of Brecon and surrounding area to sing and perform major choral works and to augment the Cathedral’s choristers. Over these five decades, the choir has performed a broad repertoire of choral music including many of the major sacred works. Performances have taken place in Brecon, around the UK and overseas.
We have an open door policy to new members, young and not so young, who are always welcome – there are no auditions. All we ask for is a love of singing and choral music, enthusiasm and commitment to our rehearsals and performances. We believe in high and stretching musical standards, but we also very much believe in keeping the fun in music making.
Join us if you love to sing! We rehearse on Wednesdays from 7.30pm to 9.30pm in Neuadd Goffa at Christ College, Brecon.
