This year WOCo is supporting the debut performance of Coro Spezzato on 20th July at St. James's Church, Sussex Gardens, London W2 3UD. Coro Spezzato were formed during lockdown and have published two new compositions, O Vos Omnes and Wash Me Throughly by Alexander Hopkins. The concert will showcase the talented emerging artists of Coro Spezzato, coming out of lockdown with a delightful programme of new compositions and established choral repertoire. Tickets are available here.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to return to the Château de Panloy in August 2021 as planned. Instead we will be doing an informal semi-staged performance of the 19th century composer Engelbert Humperdinck's adaptation of the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel. We are delighted that the performance will go ahead in one form at least and look forward to returning to French performance in the winter. The performance will be at the Manoukian Music Centre, 11 Tufton Street, London SW1P 3QB at 3pm on Saturday 31st July. To attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your booking. We are not charging for tickets, but donations can be made to support the work of WOCo's Emerging Artists.
In addition we are excited to announce that the Opéra de Dijon has invited WOCo to perform Hansel and Gretel at their winter season this year on 19th, 21st and 22nd December 2021. Tickets are available from the Opéra de Dijon box office from late summery 2021. You can find more information here.
