For this special Spring Concert, Concordia would like to take you on a musical magic carpet to Venice.  Beyond the beauty and history of its churches and palazzos, its canals, bridges and piazzas, this unique city also became known, in its golden age, as ‘The Republic of Music’. The roll-call of composers, either born in or who gravitated there, stretches from the late Renaissance through the early Baroque of the 17th century to its zenith in the 18th. These geniuses include Giovanni Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi, Heinrich Schutz and Antonio Vivaldi. All of these will be represented on our programme, carefully chosen to bring you a glorious taste of musica Veneziana. So we do hope you’ll steer your gondola towards Upper Norwood and join us for another superb concert from one of south London’s most prestigious amateur choirs.

The performance is at 7.30pm on Saturday, 21st March at St. John the Evangelist, 2 Sylvan Rd, SE19 2RX. Tickets cost £14 at the door, or £13 in advance online from

Concessions (students and those on means tested benefits) half price.  Remember that feeling you get coming home from an amazing concert?  Make a note in your diary now!
