The response to the Semi-Chorus for The Dream of Gerontius has been amazing – thanks to everyone who has put their name forward.  As previously explained, the Semi-Chorus is made up of all 3 choirs and some external singers – totalling around 45-50.  The members of the Semi-Chorus chosen from The Leconfield Singers are:

Altos

  • Jeannie Whitman-Easdaile
  • Stephanie Pountney

As Graham mentioned, this has not been an easy task as there are so many good singers and it is important that we achieve a good balance between all the various choruses, so if you’d like to discuss it further please do talk to him about it.
