The opening concert of Ondřej’s tenure as MD with Thomas Coats Memorial Choral Society featured Bach’s Magnificat and Haydn’s Paukenmesse. The choir performed alongside soloists Catrin Woodruff (soprano), Lauren Bridget Young (mezzo-soprano), Seumas Begg (tenor), and Colin Murray (baritone), and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland orchestra in Paisley Abbey.
The next season will feature a major concert to mark the choir’s 40th anniversary year. Updates to follow soon!
