Event Details

French Romantics

The City of Birmingham Choir makes a welcome return to Tewkesbury Abbey under the baton of its accomplished musical  director Adrian Lucas, for an evening of French music.

The Choir has teamed up with Midlands-born, world-renowned organist superstar, David Briggs, to bring a programme of French twentieth century choral and organ music.  David will accompany the choral pieces and play two contrasting solos on the Abbey’s fine, historic Milton Organ.

The music of these four composers will offer a listening experience perfectly aligned with the majesty and acoustic of Tewkesbury Abbey.  The skilful playing of David Briggs at the console of a world-class organ will thrill as will the contrasting pieces for the choir.
