Singing The Coronation Anthems in the land of Handel - London 12/27/18-01/01/19 - with Simon Carrington

Dear friends

I am pleased to have the chance to conduct the Handel Coronation Anthems once again in my home city of London.

I would be delighted if you would consider joining me in late December 2018 to ring in the New Year with this timeless piece of music so identified with all things Royal and British. This time of the year is one of the cheapest to travel to Europe making this a very attractive package.

The festival runs over 3 days allowing flexibility for pre/post touring throughout the UK. In this time we will rehearse together, invite you to perform individual concerts and present the Coronation Anthems as a new year gift to the people of London.

There is nothing like bringing disparate and talented voices together with an accompanying orchestra. I welcome your thoughts on whether this might be a good fit for your full choir or indeed a group of singers even if your choir cannot tour in its own right.

I have collaborated with KIconcerts on many festivals in the past and know you will enjoy working with them as much as I do. They can answer any of your questions about the touring aspects while I welcome any questions in relation to the musical elements.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Simon Carrington
Artistic Director & Conductor

10 reasons to consider performing with Z. Randall Stroope in Ireland next summer

I have been giving some thought to reasons you might wish to consider joining my 2018 Ireland festival:
  1. Safe, comfortable yet distinct, historic and cultured
  2. Affordable and often a nonstop direct flight
  3. Search for a 4 leaf clover, track down an ancestor, sight a leprechaun
  4. Breathtaking sights: Rock of Cashel, Blarney Stone, Cliffs of Moher, Kylmore Abbey, Belfast, Derry, the Titanic, Christchurch Cathedral, St. Patrick’s Cathedral
  5. Grand venues, intimate performances, appreciative audiences
  6. The festival experience with a pre or post customized tour
  7. Individual concerts as desired
  8. Exchange concert opportunities, learning River Dance moves, pronouncing Gaelic if you dare
  9. Touring with KIconcerts - an easy, happy & efficient experience given my recent festival collaborations with them
  10. Ireland; where the roads…‘rise up to meet you’
In friendship
