We were very fortunate to be able to go ahead with our spring concert before coronavirus made such events impossible. We are so grateful to our soloists Anita D'Attellis, Stephen Gadd and Lorena Paz Nieto, our guest conductor Richard Laing, the Elgar orchestra and our choir for making this a memorable evening.

'Glorious and Uplifting'

A full house at Dorchester Abbey gave an enthusiastic reception to the Benson Choral Society's rendering of three baroque masterpieces at their autumn concert. Supported by the Elgar Orchestra the concert started with a performance of a Vivaldi string concerto before the choir was joined by five superb soloists for J S Bach's Magnificat in D Major, Handel's Chandos Anthem No 9 and Vivaldi's Beatus Vir. To quote a member of the audience, 'A memorable performance'.
