A Lenten Feast of glorious music awaits the Festival audience in this year’s Windsor Spring Festival. The choral celebration being performed by so many young people and community organisations includes Handel’s Messiah, Bach’s St John Passion, Poulenc’s Stabat Mater, Stainer’s Crucifixion, Rachmaninov’s Vespers, and Zimbe! These events involve almost 600 performers, and present a unique collection of concerts, to be given by, among others, The Choir of Royal Holloway, Taplow Youth Choir, St George’s School Choirs, Cantorum, Quire Voices, The Queen’s Six, Spelthorne Choral Society, and Orpheus Sinfonia.
Throughout the Festival also run a series of competitive and participatory events for students and aspiring instrumentalists: The Finals of Berkshire Young Musician of the Year, generously sponsored by Edgington Spink Hyne, and Berkshire Young Singer of the Year, an ABRSM Bowed String Day, and Dawkes’ Learn to Play Day. 450 students have entered the competitions; the String Day offers a performing opportunity to anyone who wishes to try their pieces in front of an expert, and the Learn to Play Day introduces a host of woodwind and brass instruments to all those interested in having a go.
In celebration of the extraordinary talent that we have in the local area, primarily from young people, I encourage you to immerse yourself in the events of the Spring Festival.
