The concert will cover a wide variety of our current repertoire; past pieces have included a selection from Howell’s Requiem and Rachmaninov’s Vespers. There’s always something for everyone!

If you’ve never heard the choir before, then be prepared to be blown away by our quality and love of music-making. We sing predominantly unaccompanied and perform everything entirely from memory, allowing a real connection with the audience.

The Henley Standard has previously said that our ‘singing is beautiful and faultless’, while judges from the Choir of the Year described it as a ‘great, warm sound, very precise and well focused’ and ‘full of vitality – I love the richness and verve of the performance’

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity

During the Concert Brigadier Colin Tadier CBE, the National Director for the Regions of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, and Brigadier Peter Walker OBE, the Chairman of the Charity for Berkshire, will speak about the history and role of the Charity, including information about recent welfare cases that the Charity has supported in the Reading area to assist soldiers, former soldiers and their families.

The Venue

Greyfriars Church is an evangelical Anglican church, and former Franciscan friary, in the town centre of Reading in the English county of Berkshire. The church forms part of the Church of England’s Diocese of Oxford.

The Church is the oldest Franciscan church still in use as a place of worship in the UK. It is said to be the most complete surviving example of Franciscan architecture in England. As a consequence, it has been listed as a Grade I listed building.

Tickets are £15 each
