OUR LAST CONCERT
Cranbrook and Paddock Wood Choral Societies joined forces for this one-off special concert to celebrate 100 years since the end of World War I
Karl Jenkins: The Armed Man.
This essentially anti-war piece was commissioned by the Royal Armouries for the millennium and is very dramatic with the representation of marching feet and the shrill tones of a military band interspersed with many reflective passages. If you have never heard this work before, you are sure to find it extremely moving and exciting.
As always we had some wonderful top quality professional soloists and orchestra to accompany us with the Jenkins and also to perform some other supporting pieces including the exquisite Serenade for Strings by Elgar.
It was a stunning evening with an audience of over 400 people. The roof almost lifted off the church !
Thank you to everyone involved and a particular thank you to the singers and choral director of Paddock Wood Choral Society for joining us for such a magnificent evening.

Our singers come from all over the local area, and we always give a warm welcome to anyone who would like to come and join us. Whether you have sung in a choir all your life or never before, why not come along to a rehearsal or two to get the feel of the evening? If you would like to join you can pay your subs after a couple of weeks. You don’t need to be able to read music, although this helps, as there are many audible aids such as ‘choral-line’ to help you learn big pieces, follow the music and learn your part. All you need is a singing voice, enthusiasm and a smile! If you sing along to music at home or in the car and it gives you a buzz, then why not try being part of a ‘big noise’ and see how great that makes you feel. It has been shown in many studies that singing, particularly choral singing has an overall beneficial effect on your well being. So…come and try it for yourself. You will leave feeling upbeat and energised!
