  • First Concert of the Season review - The Phil’s new Director of Music, Dr Stephen Bullamore, praised the choir for their performance during the first concert of the season on Thursday, 26th October. “They sang splendidly well....with energy and real commitment”. He went on the say how much he’d enjoyed conducting the concert and was looking forward with great relish to many future concerts together. The concert, held at St James the Greater in Leicester, was well attended and featured the Mirror of Perfection by modern composer Richard Blackford along with Faure’s Cantique de Jean Racine and Requiem. The choir welcomed for the first time the Chameleon Arts Orchestra, consisting of first class musicians who perform with some of the country’s top orchestras, and the two soloists, Soprano Susan Gilmour Bailey and Baritone Andrew Davies whose sublime performances were well received by an enthusiastic audience.
