Dissenters do it differently…
Sunday 14 May, 5pm, St Matthias Patronal Festival
We’ll be putting on our Sunday best and joining Father David and the congregation of St Matthias in their yearly festival celebrating the Feast of St Matthias the Apostle.
John Sloboda will be conducting the Easter Hymn from Mascagni’s Cavalliera Rusticana, and Chorus of Dissent will be singing several hymns including Old Hundredth and Jerusalem, accompanied by the Elastic Band.
There will also be plenty of treats at the St Matthias outdoor fair.
Saturday 3 June, 5.30pm, St Matthias Church – Stokey Litfest concert
Our amazing 5th anniversary season continues with a concert of music about love, perfect for a summer’s evening. Mascagni, and excerpts from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and Bernstein’s brilliant West Side Story and Candide will be framed by orchestral fireworks from the Elastic Band, who will thrill us with Shostakovich and Khachaturian. We will also include some gorgeous a capella by Vaughan Williams.
Saturday 7 October, 5.30pm Stoke Newington Town Hall – Carmina Burana
Sunday 17th December, 5.30pm, St Matthias Church – Christmas concert
