A leading choir with local links

The Petros Singers’ website explains that they are ‘one of London’s leading amateur chamber choirs. We give three or four concerts each year, mainly in West London but also regularly in major venues in Central London and sometimes further afield.’

There are several links between the Petros Singers and St Augustine’s Priory including choir member Rosemary Cogswell who, apart from attending St Augustine’s Priory herself, is the mother of a past pupil and grandmother of a current pupil.

Their next concert, ‘Belshazzar’ by Handel is on Saturday 25th March at St James’s Church, 197 Piccadilly London W1 9LL and promises to be as enjoyable as their previous concerts.

The Petros Singers’ website gives details: ‘Handel’s resplendent dramatic oratorio focuses on the desperate struggle for military and religious supremacy in the Persian Gulf, a story as relevant today as it was 2,500 years ago. The all-star cast features:

Robert Murray – Belshazzar (tenor) Emma Kirkby – Nitocris (soprano) James Hall – Cyrus (counter-tenor) Giles Underwood – Gobrias (bass) David Allsopp – Daniel (counter-tenor)
