The Linsdale Singers

The Linsdale Singers from Leighton Buzzard

The Linsdale Singers is a choir of around 30 voices. Specialising in singing unaccompanied choral music the Choir also performs works that are accompanied by piano/organ or a chamber orchestra. This established choir enjoys a reputation for high quality choral singing in the Leighton Buzzard and Linslade area of Bedfordshire, but their reputation also spreads far beyond this area as they have spent many successful weekends singing in British cathedrals and other churches.

Interested in joining? Have some experience of choral singing? We currently have vacancies for altos, tenors and basses – select About > Joining for further information. If you are aged 16–20 contact us about becoming a choral scholar (any voice part).

Coming next
Summer Choral Concert
‘As Torrents in Summer’
A watery-, summery-themed concert including ‘Captain Noah and his floating zoo’
Saturday 20th July, 2024, 7.00pm
Linslade, Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire LU7 2NR
For their summer 2024 concert the Linsdale singers will be letting their hair down with a selection of light choral pieces that all have a watery or summery theme. The Choir is delighted to welcome back Paul Daggett as piano accompanist.

The main work will be 'Captain Noah and his floating zoo', a light-hearted children's 'pop cantata' recounting the biblical story of Noah's flood. Music is by Joseph Horovitz and the very witty words are by Michael Flanders – best known for his stage partnership with Donald Swann. Also to be included is George Dyson's 'Four songs for sailors' – a short set of pieces chosen to mark the 60th anniversary of the composer's death.

These two works will be integrated within a programme of short choral arrangements or original pieces that all have a summer or water connection. These include Eric Whitacre's 'Seal lullaby', James Molloy's 'Kerry dance', James Erb's popular arrangement of 'Shenandoah' and, of course, Edward Elgar's partsong 'As torrents in summer'.

All in all the evening concert should provide much to enjoy for all ages.

During the interval refreshments will be available, kindly provided by members of St Barnabas, with profits going to the Church.

Entry to the concert is by ticket priced £10 (free for under 18s) and are available online in advance (no booking fee) via www.linsdale.org.uk and also on the door.
