Schola Cantorum Concert: Saturday 24 March

In a new venture for Schola Cantorum this year – the choir will be performing Bach St John Passion in the Abbey at 7pm on Saturday 24 March. Please do come if you can. The boys are working hard to master all the music (in German) while also preparing for their daily services. It would be lovely for them to sing to a full Nave.

Tickets are £20, £15 and £12 and are available from jclyons@deanclose.org.uk or on line at www.bacontheatre.co.uk.
