We sadly will bid farewell to Michael Barlow in June 2018 as he is stepping down as Music Director of the Shoreham Singers after the summer concert to concentrate on his other musical activities. We would like to thank him for all the enjoyment we have had working under his direction and for his imaginative concert programming each year. We wish him well and hope to see him at our concerts in future, either as audience or singer.
Do come to his final concert on Sunday, 19 June in Shoreham Church at 7.30pm. The programme includes Michael’s settings of two Shakespearean Songs, Parry’s I was Glad, Haydn’s Paukenmesse and Tippett’s Spirituals from A Child of Our Time.
Our sorrow is lessened by our delight in persuading Dale Wills to lead us from September 2018. Dale is well known in and around Shoreham, and has accompanied us at several recent concerts.
