Come and hear an evening of great music.
If you've been to one of the Parliament Choir and the Southbank Sinfonia's concerts before you will know how good they are. This is a treat not to be missed.
This time they are performing Haydn's Harmony Mass and Poulenc's Gloria at the surprisingly intimate Cadogan Hall.
The two pieces represent high points in the careers of these two sunniest of composers.
Haydn’s Harmoniemesse is the last of the six great Mass settings produced towards the end of his life. Although this is his final major work, Haydn’s undimmed musical imagination is set free on the grandest of scales in this constantly engaging and fascinating piece.
Another late work, Poulenc’s Gloria exhibits both sides of this still underrated composer’s
personality, monkish yet playful. This exhilarating piece veers wildly between the cloister and the playground.
It's going to be a terrific evening and I hope to see you there.
We'll be buying our own tickets, so it's unlikely that we'll be sitting together, but I will arrange a meeting point so that those who want to can meet up before and after the concert (and in the interval if you're so inclined).
Tickets, priced at £10, £17-50 and £25 are available from the Cadogan Hall Box Office on[masked] or from the web site at www.cadoganhall.com
How to find us:
The Cadogan Hall is a few minutes walk from Sloane Square Tube Station. Turn right as you leave the tube station and walk past the Royal Court Theatre to the pedestrian crossing on the corner. Cross the road and veer left into Sedding Street and you'll see Cadogan Hall ahead of you at the end of the street.

I look forward to seeing you there.
