Poster 2007

January 2013 Nick Austin appointed music director

... and we say a fond farewell to Peter White after 16 years as our previous Music Director.

October 2008 a French excursion

... with our very first tour abroad visiting Oloron St Marie and Ogeu-les-Bains in the Haut BĂ©arn on the edge of the Pyrenees.  Despite Channel Tunnel closures following a fire and poor weather the choir arrived safely at Oloron, to the amazement of organiser Peter Soul, on 21st October 2008.   We gave two concerts, with one being a joint concert with our hosts, the local French choir La Villanelle.

June 2007 40th anniversary concert

... celebrating 40 years as a choral group, and 10 years under the baton of Peter White.   The concert included a first performance of Four Thames Songs, especially composed by Peter for the occasion.

November 2004 a successful adoption

... with the premiere of Echoes of Other Worlds by composer Mark Bowden.  We "adopted" Mark under the PRS for Music Foundation Adopt-a-Composer scheme for 2003-04.   We were one of three choirs chosen countrywide to take part in supporting gifted emerging composers in the composition and performance of new music.

November 1992 a return to Windsor
