We sing Handel’s Messiah on Saturday 3rd December at 5 pm at St John’s Wood Church, London, and it marks 25th Anniversary since our first performance of Messiah 25 years ago at St George’s Hanover Square. We will be accompanied by a small orchestra, two Japanese soloists from the Royal Academy of Music.
 
After this in the new year, we are working on our first tour to Japan in April 2017 – dates of concerts to be 8, 9 and 15, 16 April, in Tokyo, Kobe and Kyoto. We hope to plan some other events in 2017.
 
この秋のシーズンの練習日程をお送りしますので、ご査収ください。練習は、これまでと同じくグロヴナー・チャペルで、9月7日(水)通常の午後7時15分開始、9時15分終了する予定です。コンサートまで、何日か会場の都合で練習できない日がありますが、その場合、午後3-5時(?)にパート練習を行う予定ですのでご了承ください。この他、ご希望がありましたら、ハムステッドの教会で日曜午後に練習を設定いたします。上記参照ください。
 
今年の秋から一年間、日英音楽協会および日英合唱団は創設25周年目を迎えて記念年となりますので、第一回目のコンサートで歌った、ヘンデルの「メサイア」を取り上げています。今回小編成のオーケストラの伴奏で、ソリストは2名英国王立音楽院に在籍する日本人の音楽家が担当する予定です。会場は、ロンドン、セントジョンズウッド教会で、12月3日(土)午後5時開演を予定しています。
 
この後、2017に入りましたら、4月にはじめての日本公演旅行を企画しています。日程としましては、4月8,9日の週末と15、16日の週末に東京、神戸と京都でコンサートを予定しています。可能でしたら、是非日本公演に参加していただけましたら幸いです。ご出張やお里帰りを上記日程に合わせることができる方は是非お知らせください。一週末だけでも歓迎いたします。*これについての詳細は、改めてお知らせいたします。
 
We are recruiting new members, and please do encourage your friends, colleagues and family to come and sing with UK-Japan Choir. Please do let us know when you know someone who may be interested. 日英合唱団は新規メンバーを募集しています。ご友人・同僚・ご家族でご興味のありそうな方がいらしたら、是非おすすめしてください。そして、是非本部にお知らせください。
 
Final rehearsal schedule will be circulated soon. Music – you are welcome to borrow music until new copies arrive. It is fairly straight forward to purchase Messiah copy from any music shop or online. * Handel Messiah, edited by Watkins Shaw, New Novello Choral Edition.
 
詳細の予定表は後日配布いたします。楽譜は新しい楽譜が配達されるまで、貸し出し用の楽譜をご利用ください。ヘンデル「メサイア」の楽譜は比較的簡単に購入できますので、上記詳細をご覧になってお買い求めいただいても全く問題ありません。
