Jubilee Come & Sing
We are delighted that this fabulous day of music-making will be led by the irrepressible Brian Kay, conductor, broadcaster and singer (and RSCM Vice President), and will be accompanied by RSCM Director Hugh Morris.
‘This is an excellent opportunity to come together and sing glorious music which celebrates the Jubilee of our Royal Patron, in a wonderful setting in the very shadow of the royal palace, Windsor Castle. It includes the uplifting new anthem ‘In Our Service’ as well as well-loved classics. I am personally really looking forward to playing the organ for the occasion, and I am sure that we will all have a great day together.’ – Hugh Morris
