Choralia Chamber Choir brings Songs from the Shows to Lymington Baptist Church

SONGS from the Shows will be performed by Milford’s popular Choralia Chamber Choir in a concert at Lymington Baptist Church.

The 40-strong group, formed in 2021, continues to increase its repertoire and extend its programme of events to New Forest towns and villages.

On Sunday 14th July the choir will host their summer concert inspired by songs from some of the best-loved West End and Broadway hit musicals such West Side Story, Les Misérables, and Phantom of the Opera.

The choir will be conducted by their musical director Phil Daish-Handy, with proceeds raised from the concert used to support Oxfam.

Choralia Milford spokesperson Shirley Hewitt said: “We are a friendly chamber choir that works hard to create high quality performances of eclectic repertoire.”

“Comprising around 40 members, this unique choir has developed a broad range of classical and contemporary repertoire, including world premieres of local composers’ music.”

The choir will be led by musical director Philip Daish-Handy, a former winner of prestigious Music at Beaulieu Competition, leading to numerous performances and several recordings.

Philip founded and is artistic director of the Nova Foresta Classical players. With his orchestra, Philip has performed many concerts locally and has collaborated with numerous choirs and choral societies to form choral extravaganzas, ‘come and sing’ events, candlelight concerts and Christmas concerts throughout the UK. He is also musical director of the Lymington Choral Society and Voices of the Forest.

The concert is at Lymington Baptist Church at 4pm on Sunday 14th July. Tickets are £15 from The Bridge box office, from the Oxfam Shops in New Milton and Lymington, and on the door. To find out more visit from www.choraliamilford.org.uk
