Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle


Please open up the pictures below to see the concert posters in full.

Come and hear the lovely 'Petite Messe Solennelle', by the master of operatic composition, Gioachino Rossini. His beautiful operatic melodies, harmonies, contrasts and drama make the work a joy for soloists, chorus and audience alike.

Rossini wrote the work for one of his famous musical 'Salons' in Paris, with accompaniment by piano with harmonium or accordion. Have you ever heard the accordion version? Now is your chance! We will be singing the work accompanied by Ben de Souza on accordion and Kevin Gill on piano.
