Over the last few months The Handful has enjoyed some great coverage here in Bath, as well as nationally!
We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen to be a part of the Making Music Together Exhibition being held at the Barbican Music Library until March 23rd.
"In communities all across the UK, friends, neighbours and colleagues meet up regularly to make music. From jazz to folk, pop to classical, barbershop to brass, thousands of groups gather together in halls, houses, garages, churches, fields and theatres for the joy of creating and performing with others.
Making Music Together celebrates the scale and breadth of this leisure-time music scene, and the positive impact taking part has on the hundreds of thousands of players and singers who get together week after week to make music."
Our recording of Pilgrims Hymn by Stephen Paulus will be playing, accompanied by information, photos and quotes about The Handful. Do pop along to see the exhibition if you're in London!
In November, The Bath Magazine wrote a wonderful feature on the choir with an extensive interview with Tomos, who was just joining us as Musical Director. There was a particular focus on why singing is so vital to human identity, and the power that the shared experience of choral singing brings to our lives.
Our February concert was a sell-out and we were so thrilled to perform to such a full house! No time to rest on our laurels though, with our next concert on March 23rd! A beautiful mixture of a cappella music spanning five centuries to commemorate real life events and stir the soul.
St Mary's Bathwick at 7.30pm.
Our planning for the rest of the year is coming together nicely - rehearsals for our March concert are underway and tickets are already on sale at Bath Box Office. We've also now completed programming for our summer concert at Prior Park! Read more about the coming year's concerts here.
