Joyful Company of Singers
The Joyful Company of Singers, conductor Peter Broadbent, launches its 25th anniversary season with a concert St Sepulchre without Newgate on 17 October performing music by Roxanna Panufnik, Jonathan Harvey and Poulenc's Figure Humaine, his astonishing cantata written in occupied Paris setting words by Paul Eluard. Also in the programme is music by Chris Williams, the winner of the inaugural Joyful Company's Young Composers Competition.

The group's anniversary season continues with a positive plethora of concerts, including the Rachmaninov Vespers at St Martin in the Fields (31/10), Handel's Messiah at St James's Piccadilly (14/12), music for Passiontide by Andrzej Panufnik, Sir John Tavener, James Macmillan and Giles Swayne (2/4/14) and their 25th anniversary concert on 10 June 2014 at St John's Smith Square with music by Richard Strauss, Schoenberg, Brahms, Elgar, Bingham, Stanford and Alexander Campkin. The choir are also performing at the Presteigne Festival next year (23 and 24 August 2014). Further information from the Joyful Company of Singers website.
