14.04.23 Easebourne concert of music for Eastertide with South Downs Soloists

South Downs Soloists are a new and exciting professional vocal ensemble based in the South of England, directed by George Haynes, who is currently a countertenor Lay Vicar at Chichester Cathedral. With performances focussing on full-voiced ensemble singing, bringing well-known and more obscure repertoire to beautiful venues across the area.

Most of the eight singers have strong connections with the South Downs, including associations with Chichester and Winchester Cathedrals, as well as experiences from further afield in Cambridge and London.

The South Downs Soloists look forward to bringing regular performances in their own interpretative style to the South Downs and beyond in the future!
