Chichester Chorale start 20th-anniversary celebrations

Choral works by Schubert, Brahms and Bruckner are on the programme as Chichester Chorale start to celebrate their 20th anniversary year ahead with a concert at Boxgrove Priory Church on Friday 5 July at 7.30pm.

Conductor Tom Robson is promising Franz Schubert’s famous Mass in G alongside glorious music by Johannes Brahms, including How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings, and hauntingly-beautiful motets by Anton Bruckner, including Locus Iste in his 200th anniversary year, accompanied by the Chichester Chamber Ensemble.

As Tom says: “The choir was set up in 2004 by my father Arthur and by Mark Wardell so 2024-25 is our 20th anniversary. The first concert they did was in December 2024 and we’ve got a few extra things planned in the next year to celebrate the anniversary alongside the usual programme of three concerts. We’re going to be singing mass in Westminster Cathedral next May as well as some other things for the year.”
