Leeds’ own Philharmonic Chorus performs Mozart’s music at Leeds Town Hall
Under the baton of charismatic conductor Grant Llewellyn, Leeds Philharmonic Chorus will perform Mozart’s Requiem; a piece that he wrote in the last months and weeks of his short life. Excerpts from this work have featured in various films such as the 2013 action film The Wolverine and the 2013 biographical film One Chance. The concert also features a performance of Mozart’s Splendente te, Deus and Mozart’s Symphony No 40 which opens with an instantly recognisable theme!
Leeds Philharmonic Chorus and Manchester Camerata will be joined by a quartet of very talented soloists Rebecca Evans (soprano), Catherine Wyn Rogers (mezzo soprano), John Daszak (tenor) and Stephan Loges (bass). Rebecca Evans is a Grammy Award-winning artist and is a huge favourite at the BBC Proms. Catherine Wyn-Rogers was a Foundation Scholar at the Royal College of Music and is a regular guest of the English National Opera, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and the Bavarian State Opera. Boasting a broad and eclectic repertoire, John Daszak is widely considered one of Europe’s most versatile tenors. Stephan Loges has given recitals throughout the world including regular appearances at Wigmore Hall, London and Carnegie Hall, New York.
Leeds Philharmonic Society has over 100 singing members regularly performing concerts at Leeds Town Hall. In recent years the Chorus has recorded works such as Stanford's Stabat Mater and Te Deum for Chandos, Walton's Gloria and Belshazzar's Feast for Naxos and The Messiah for CMI Records. As well as performing concerts in Leeds Town Hall, the Chorus has performed in many other prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall, the Liszt Academy (Budapest) and Stephansdom (Vienna).
