What’s happening at NLC…

November 30th 2019: Winter Concert
We will be returning to St James Church, Muswell Hill on 30th November for our winter concert, with a feast of Italian music from the 19th century, with Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle as the central work. We are delighted to be joined by a wonderful group of soloists for this concert: Nadine Benjamin (soprano), Catherine Hopper (mezzo-soprano), Thando Mjandana (tenor) and James Cleverton (baritone). We will be performing the earlier version of this piece, scored for two pianos and harmonium., accompanied by the incredible Scott Brothers duo (Tom and Jonathan) on piano and harmonium, and supported by our regular accompanist, Catherine Borner on the second piano.
As an appetiser, which we hope will complement the exuberant and extrovert nature of the Rossini, the choir will perform Verdi’s exquisite Ave Maria (from 4 pezzi sacri) and the Scott Brothers will play a virtuosic arrangement of Rossini’s overture to Il barbiere di Siviglia. There may even be a surprise item from our distinguished quartet of soloists.
June 2019: Summer Concert
Our summer concert at St James Church, Muswell Hill on 22nd June 2019 included John Rutter’s Magnificat and George Dyson’s Hierusalem. Yvette Bonner was soprano soloist alongside the Meridian Sinfonia. More details can be found .
