Vivaldi Gloria at St Stephen WalbrookOctober 2015

The first public concert under the new Gabrieli Roar name was a performance of the Vivaldi Gloria with London Youth Chamber Choir, the highlight in an evening of entertainment for Gabrieli supporters at this beautiful Wren church in the heart of the City.

Following an intensive workshop rehearsal with Paul McCreesh in September, the choir were joined by the Gabrieli Players, led by Catherine Martin, and soloists from the Gabrieli Consort, Emilia Morton and Martha McLorinan. The choir’s spirited, committed performance belied the choir’s relative inexperience, having been formed for the year just three weeks earlier with over 70% new membership! If this is how a choir starts the year, we can only imagine what they will go on to achieve later in the season and we are delighted to be working in partnership with them.
