New choir to perform in Halesworth
A NEW choir will make its debut at St Mary’s Church in Halesworth on Sunday.
Concordia comprises just 14 voices, drawn from Suffolk’s top vocal groups and directed by Ralph Woodward, a rising star on the choral conducting scene.
Based in Cambridge, Ralph is currently musical director of the Fairhaven Singers, Full Score and the Northumbrian Recorder and Viol School and was director of the Britten-Pears Chamber Choir from 2002 until 2010.
He has worked in more than 20 countries and has conducted the London Mozart Players, The Parley of Instruments and Britten Sinfonia.
Past collaborators have included Vladimir Ashkenazy, Emma Kirkby, Emma Johnson, James Bowman – and recently extreme-metal band Cradle of Filth.
