School Concert in Guildford
Guildford United Reformed Church
Wednesday 12 June 10.20am
Bach to School's concerts in 2019 celebrate the 200th birthday of Queen Victoria. As well as being an iconic British monarch, political powerhouse, accomplished musician and mum of nine, Victoria was a trailblazer, early tech adopter and culture vulture. Step into Victoria's dainty shoes and hear the world as she did through our soundtrack to the Victorian era. This special series will take you inside the palace walls with music from the Queen's favourites, Mendelssohn and Strauss, into the Savoy Theatre of Gilbert and Sullivan fame, and on to the cobbled streets with songs from the Victorian Music Halls.|
Further details of the programme will be announced soon!
|Guildford United Reformed Church has been meeting at various buildings around Guildford since the 17th century. The church moved to its current location on the road out of town in 1965 when the architects Barber, Bundy & Greenfield designed this startlingly modern octagonal building to replace the former premises in the town centre. The church is light and spacious, beautifully lit through the windows high above in the clerestory, and is home to an impressive church organ that is said to be one of the finest in southern England. Music is at the heart of the community life of the church, and the excellent acoustics create the perfect spot in which to enjoy one of the frequent concerts that take place there. Bach to School is delighted to now be part of this thriving musical scene!|
