Kodály Choir of London

Posted on

Vauxhall, South West London

Conducted by Alan Murdock

The Kodály Choir of London rehearses choral music using Kodály principles. Some knowledge of solfa is recommended, and some choral singing experience is helpful. We sing beautiful music – for example recent rehearsals have included sight singing pieces by Telemann, Weelkes, Purcell, Victoria, modern composer Will Todd, and a host of fairly easy canons which are accessible to relative beginners in solfa but enjoyable for all. Work involves a range of varied ease/difficulty, styles, eras of music etc, under the able direction of Alan Murdock. We are a small friendly group, who meet for the enjoyment and practice of music. We are working towards a performance of Kodaly’s Pange Lingua, under the baton of László Nemes, Director of the Kodaly Institute, Hungary. This will take place on Friday evening March 6th 2020, at the Kodaly memorial concert in St John’s Smith Square.

The choir meet at 2:30pm to 5:30pm on the second Sundays of most months (but check with the choir for exact dates) on Sundays at Wheatsheaf Hall, Vauxhall.
