Play & Sing Events
Every year, we welcome over 100 musicians to play and sing with Spires Music as we learn a work from scratch in just one day. We rehearse during the morning and afternoon and then, under the guidance of our Music Director Jack Lovell-Huckle, we give an informal performance for our friends and family. We've previously tackled works including Shostakovich 5th Symphony, Brahms' A German Requiem, Handel's Messiah and Schubert's Mass in Ab.

The day will end with an informal run through at 4:30pm and we welcome anyone to come and be our audience, free of charge.
Tea/Coffee will be available during regular breaks for a small charge. Please bring some lunch. Our now famous afternoon teas will be provided as usual before the final informal performance.
