Singing for Ukraine

Tarantara put on a Singing for Ukraine fund raising concert at the United Reformed Church , Stratford   on Thursday  7th April .  A large number of people pulled out all the stops to make this concert happen, and of course , it was Linnea's first concert as our Musical Director.

It was a heart-warming evening for all concerned. The choir performed  a wonderful selection of stirring and emotive music, with excellent performances all round. But most importantly, from the audience and our supporters at large, we raised an astonishing £2,750 for the Ukraine Disasters Relief Fund.

All in all an evenent to be proud of.    Well done to all concerned 



 

 

A marvellous end to 2021, and the promise of a positive start to 2022

A cracking end to 2021 

We ended the year in the shadow of Omicrom. The choir members worked hard to learn some new pieces, and to polish up some older pieces.  Our efforts were rewarded with two wonderful Christmas concerts , the first a Christmas Concert at St.Peter’s Inkberrow on the 11th December and the second our season ending finale and our annual home concert. 2021, at St Andrews Shottery on December 18th. 

Based on the feedback we have received , "Tarantara Christmas concerts!  probably the best two Christmas concerts in the world ever"  as Carlsberg would say

Thank you for your support .We look gorward to seeing you in 2022, Omicron willing!!

 

End of an Era

End of an Era

Following our successful Christmas Concerts in 2021 our Musical Director, Jonathan Hill, announced his retirement.  Jonathan had been the first and only MD since Tarantara was formed in 2003.  Jonathan has been an inspirational leader over this time and is responsible for the success of the Choir, both in terms of quality of performance and the enjoyment of audiences and singers alike.  During his reign, the Choir has more than doubled in size and has raised considerable sums of money for charities and organisations across the Midlands and beyond.  The Choir’s varied repertoire, developed by Jonathan, has proved popular with its audiences over the last 19 years and has become one of the unique features of Tarantara.  The Choir is hugely grateful for his dedicated service during this time not only rehearsing and conducting the Choir, but also composing musical arrangements for us.  As our twentieth year approaches, one chapter closes and another opens and we are fortunate to be able to welcome Linnea Markgren as our Acting Musical Director.  We look forward to the further development of the Choir under her direction.
