RCS – St John’s 150th Anniversary Concert

Rolleston Choral Society held a very successful concert at St John’s Church, Horninglow, in March, attended by the Mayor of East Staffordshire, Councillor Beryl Toon and her consort James, who were carrying out one of their last official duties of her mayoral year.

St John’s is this year celebrating its 150th anniversary, and Rolleston Choral Society are helping with the festivities. In July they will be staging a concert which will take the name ‘John’ as its theme. We have been thinking laterally: the programme will include the Cantique de Jean Racine by Gabriel Faure, as well as pieces by John Lennon, Elton John and Johann Strauss. More ‘Johns’ to be announced!

The concert will be taking place on Friday, July 7th, not the usual Saturday, and may also start earlier than usual.

Further details will be available nearer the date.

Thanks to Nick Willmot for the info.
