Current Call for Singers

Sacred music by Mendelssohn, Brahms and Bruckner

Why

The Péti Consort was established to give experienced singers the opportunity to perform at the highest level, and to widen the repertoire of both singers and the average concert-goer. 

Who

The Péti Consort has gone from strength to strength since its first concert in November 2016. Over the course of four concerts they have explored music from Renaissance Italy and England, all the way to contemporary music creations by Pärt, Lauridsen and even Bernstein. 

The Consort is suitable for highly experienced amateur singers, who are strong readers and can hold a part, music students and professional singers at the beginning of their careers. 

Their conductor, Josh Skorja, is particularly experienced in shaping the choir’s sound into a well balanced chamber choir, and known for encouraging musicianship and collaboration between voices and individuals. 

Concert Date

Saturday, 14th July 2018 at 7.30pm. St Matthew’s Church in Chapel Allerton, LS7 3QF, Leeds. 

Repertoire

For our Summer concert, we will be exploring sacred music works by Mendelssohn, Bruckner and Brahms, combining some well-known standard repertoire with less familiar pieces.

Denn Er hat seinen Engeln
Jauchzet dem Herrn
Richte mich Gott, Op. 78, No. 2
*Sechs Sprüche, Op. 79

Anton Bruckner

*Virga Jesse
*Os justi
*Vexilla Regis

Johannes Brahms

Pieces without an asterisk are confirmed, plus one or more items marked with one, depending on the size of the choir.
