Future concerts

Saturday 23rd March 2024 at 7.30 – ROSSINI Petite Messe Solennelle

Methodist Church, High Street, Portishead, BS20 6EN

Portishead Choral Society under the direction of Jonathan Palmer and Richard Lennox (Piano) perform Rossini’s ‘Petite Messe Solennelle’. This delightful setting of a Mass is neither small nor solemn but is composed with a light and operatic flair. At times, it even seems to be a little “tongue in cheek”.

A team of distinguished soloists will join the choir:

  • Sophie Kirk-Harris (Soprano)
  • Rebecca Chellappah (Mezzo Soprano)
  • Nicholas Sherwood (Tenor)
  • Robert Marson (Bass)

Make a note of the date so you can enjoy the evening experiencing Rossini’s last serious work in an intimate setting!
