The Athenaeum Singers of Warminster are delighted to welcome Cole Bendall as he takes on the role of Director of Music.

Cole studied music at the Universities of Aberdeen, and most recently, Edinburgh, where he has been completing a PhD.  He has extensive experience with choral music both in his native Scotland and internationally.  This summer he reached the last sixteen in a prestigious international choral conducting competition in Romania.  He weaves his career around teaching, conducting, composing, and as a tenor soloist and has an overriding passion for choral music.

Rehearsals will resume under Cole’s leadership on Tuesday 4th September. This is a wonderful opportunity for new singers to join the choir at the beginning of the rehearsal period which leads to a Christmas Concert on Saturday 1st December. New singers are invited to experience three rehearsals before they decide to join so they can find out just what choral singing involves.

Last September, Charles, who hadn’t sung since schooldays, allowed himself to be persuaded by a friend to ‘give it a try’.  With some trepidation he came to rehearsals and found that he ‘absolutely loved it from the beginning’.  The challenge of having to work at something new and achieving beyond your expectations is very rewarding, as is the sense of accomplishment  when you work together to produce something worthy of putting on to an audience.  The availability of on-line help in learning your part makes this accessible to lots of people.

 The concert will feature Vivaldi’s Gloria, Haydn’s Little Organ Mass and three hauntingly beautiful but lesser known Christmas pieces:  Posten’s, Jesus Christ the Apple Tree, Howells’ Here is the Little Door and Praetorius’ Es ist ein Ros entsprungen.
