Dissenters do it differently…



Saturday 18th April St Matthias Church N16: Inaugural Concert with Young Dissenters

We make our debut at St Matthias Church, a hidden Grade I listed gem of a building with a magnificent acoustic. Programme will include Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle, which is neither small nor solemn. This is a most significant event for us: as well as our first concert in our new home, we will be presenting the debut performance of Stoke Newington’s first ever youth choir Young Dissenters singing a piece written especially for them by the eminent composer Harvey Brough.

Saturday 6th June Stoke Newington Town Hall: Clara Sanabras El Vol Dispers – Songs of Spanish Exile

After going down a storm at Stokey Litfest in 2014, they have invited us back again in 2015 to sing in the Town Hall. We are absolutely thrilled to announce another collaboration with the staggeringly talented composer and singer Clara Sanabras. We will be performing songs from her latest album.

Saturday 27th June St Augustine’s Church N5:  Chorus Of Dissent In Cabaret

A night to celebrate the wealth and diversity of individual talent in the choir, with music for solo and small ensembles. Kurt Weill, Cole Porter and Walton guaranteed, plus other decadent programme items to be suggested by you. The whole event will be centred around a fine banquet provided by Pestle and Mortar. And bar.

Saturday 10th October Stoke Newington Town Hall:   Magnificent Mozart

Our season finale is a solemn and serious celebration of one of the greatest of all composers who produced so much in such a tragically short life. The programme will include the iconic Requiem.

Thurs 29th October-Sun 1st November L’Abbaye St Michel, Gaillac:  Tour De France

We and the Elastic Band fly out to Gaillac near Toulouse to work with Gaillac’s own community choir, with whom we’ll be performing in their ancient Albigensian abbey on the banks of the river Tarn.  There will be plenty of time for exploring the town and surrounding area. And the wine, of course!
