The first of the concerts will be held at St. John’s Church, Irlam Road, Flixton, on Wednesday, May 16, and will be repeated on Saturday, May 19, at St. Werburgh’s Church, Wilbraham Road, Chorlton, both concerts will starting at 7.30pm.

Said Julie Parker, Musical Director of Urmston Choral: “Our May concerts give us the opportunity to explore some larger works from the French choral tradition.  We are looking forward to taking up the challenge of these three French masterpieces, complemented by two excellent soloists who are professional musicians in their own right.”
