Dart Festival Chorus
Dart Festival Chorus is delighted to invite you to its 2019 concert, ‘Light Out of Darkness’. Its subtitle ‘and there was day and night; the sun the moon and the stars’ should give you a bit of a clue as to the direction we are taking with this. Expect a musical journey that not only leads you through choral works that reflect literal representations of the theme but also explores sacred interpretations. The choir loves the programme and we feel sure that you, too, will be inspired by its eclectic mix of the familiar and the less familiar – including an unfamiliar twist on a very familiar song!
The choir is thrilled to welcome back James Davey, as its guest conductor for 2019. James worked with us for the first time in 2018. The experience was so amazing that many of the singers asked if he could come back again. We are very happy to say that he accepted our invitation!
