ABOUT THE PERFORMERS

Angmering Chorale celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and, from a small inaugural group, has grown to over 100 singers. Under Musical Director George Jones, the repertoire of the Chorale ranges from Bach to The Beatles. 
The choir is proud to have as its Patron the celebrated composer Sir Karl Jenkins, CBE, and enjoys a close association with his works. In January 2007 the Chorale were invited to perform "The Armed Man" in Carnegie Hall, New York, and the US premiere of Jenkins's
"Stabat Mater" at the Lincoln Center two years later. In 2011 the choir recorded Sir Karl's latest work in Abbey Road Studios, and performed his "Motets" both at home and on tour in Paris last year. In May 2014 the Angmering Chorale joined choirs from France, Belgium and Germany to perform "The Armed Man" conducted by George Jones. This formed part of the official celebrations commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1 and the 70th Anniversary of the Invasion of Europe in World War 2 at the actual place where Allied forces landed.
