ONE of the best-known choirs in the North-East, Cleveland Philharmonic Choir is delighted to announce its first public performance since 2019.

The concert takes place tomorrow (November 20) at Stockton Baptist Church at 7.30pm, with The Mowbray Orchestra, and comprises Mozart’s Mass in C minor, together with Haydn’s Symphony No. 49 (La Passione). The conductor is Thomas Neal, with soloists Emma Morwood (soprano), Helen Sherman (mezzo-soprano), Dominic Bevan (tenor) and Robin Crinson (bass). The chorusmaster is John Forsyth MBE.

Ticket numbers are restricted to allow for spacing between households. The concert will last about 80 minutes with no interval, and all performers will have taken a Covid test prior to the performance. Audience members will be asked to wear a mask if they can.

The choir continued to meet remotely during the periods of lockdown, and has been rehearsing face-to-face (albeit in a Covid-secure way) since September, and is now looking forward to singing in front of an audience once more. The programme is sure to provide concert-goers with a much-needed, wonderful musical experience.

Tickets are £15 for adults, £3 for children and those in full-time education, and are available from TicketSource at or ring 01642 782009.
