In the first of our 2018 Autumn Sunday Series at the Grange Wellington Hotel, guest conductor Max Barley directs the handpicked Brandenburg Singers in this concert of a cappella choral favourites spanning the centuries. The programme will have a particular emphasis on Romantic and turn-of-the-century works by Bruckner, Grieg, Rachmaninov, Rheinberger and Stanford, with the lighter second half to include arrangements of Harold Arlen’s Over the Rainbow and Billy Joel’s And so it goes.
Join us for the perfect Sunday treat — a relaxing, early-evening concert in beautiful surroundings. And for full indulgence, book in early for the Grange Afternoon Tea — or even an overnight stay!
