The first of tonight's two concerts is a beautiful Baroque programme, all the more lovely when performed in the candlelit surroundings of St Martin's. In the first half the Brandenburg Baroque Soloists will treat us to two masterworks by JS Bach, the Concerto for 2 violins with Soloists leader Persephone Gibbs and Oliver Webber, and Brandenburg Concerto No. 3. In the second half they will be joined by a chamber choir-sized contingent of Twickhenham Choral Society to perform Vivaldi's ever-popular Gloria.

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
TCS is a friendly, thriving choir of over 100 voices, with a broad repertoire of sacred and secular works from the Renaissance to the present day. Under the baton of its dynamic conductor, Christopher Herrick, TCS is privileged to work with top-class vocal soloists and orchestras, including the Brandenburg Sinfonia and Brandenburg Baroque Soloists. Concerts are staged at least three times a year, usually in local West London venues, but also further afield at venues including Lichfield, Ely and Guildford cathedrals. TCS hosts an annual choral workshop and takes a biennial tour to a European city. The culmination of the 2015-16 season was a performance of Elgar’s 'The Dream of Gerontius' at St John’s Smith Square, London, in July, and the choir looks forward to celebrating its centenary in 2021 for which it will commission works from exciting contemporary composers.
