Our Come & Sing and Easter Concert


Congratulations to members of the orchestra, choir and soloists who struggled and won against severely-reduced public transport to join in the Come & Sing in The Great Hall at Barts on Sunday afternoon!

It turned out to be the best way to spend a wet Sunday afternoon. Wonderful music and enthusiastic musicians joined together to produce an enjoyable performance.

Thanks to all involved.

Join us for our Easter Concert of Bach’s St John Passion, written for the Good Friday Vespers service of 1724.

Baton down at 7.30 pm on Monday 28th March in The Great Hall at Barts Hospital. Tickets are available at the door and all proceeds go to Barts Cancer Unit for the benefit of the patients.

Bring a friend and let Bach’s dramatisation give a different perspective to your Easter.
