BSMA’s first concert, which was of Christmas music, was held in St. Michael's Church in 1940 under the baton of Mr L. Dupere. Christmas concerts remain a most popular part of our repertoire, the most recent in 2015 with Richard Brain conducting JS Bach’s Christmas Oratorio to a full house at the Methodist Church..
We enjoy an exciting range of music; recent concerts have included Bach’s St John Passion, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius and Mozart’s Requiem and Solemn Vespers. In the past we have been privileged to give premiere performances of works by Menotti and Gordon Jacob and more recently to stage lesser known works, e.g. Canterbury Pilgrims by Dyson and Gorecki’s Totus Tuus.
