Over the last few months The Handful has enjoyed some great media coverage here in Bath, as well as nationally!
There is a long article about The Handful in Somerset Life magazine (March 2019) with a light-hearted look at our "mischievous" programming and how we are evolving as a choir - an excellent read!
We received a wonderful review of our February 2019 concert, by Anthony Corfe which will be appearing in the Bath Chronicle shortly. Here's an extract...."Throughout the concert the breadth of tone, the range of dynamics, the feeling of line as expressed by the choir, seemed limitless – I found myself transfixed by the sheer beauty of their singing and the depth of their understanding of what the music was setting out to express. But more than that, and it was in the Requiem that it really emerged – a feeling of an infinite transcendence in the conjunction of the secular with the divine."
We were also delighted to be featured in the Making Music Together Exhibition being held at the Barbican Music Library in March. Our recording of Pilgrims Hymn by Stephen Paulus was played along with information, photos and quotes about The Handful!
Our February concert was a sell-out and we were so thrilled to perform to such a full house!
The trend continued just a month later for our concert on March 23rd with some great reviews of our thoughtful, reflective programme.
We are now embarking on rehearsals for our summer concert on Saturday 15th June at gorgeous Prior Park College Chapel! Read more about the June programme here.
We will be wrapping up our 2019 season with a concert of festive cheer on Saturday 14th December.
We look forward to seeing you!
