THURROCK Choral Society is delighted to announce that with effect from 9th January, which is the first rehearsal of this Spring Term, it has appointed a new Musical Director Elspeth Wilkes. Elspeth is an experienced and accomplished director of choirs and operas working in London and all over the UK. A highly qualified pianist she has performed to much acclaim in this country and abroad and has had a long association with our society as its regular accompanist and assistant director.
Elspeth is a very empathetic teacher and has an excellent understanding of the needs and aspirations of singers. She looks forward to working with and giving her full support to the members as they learn a new repertoire for the next TCS concert on Sunday 24th March 2019. The members are equally pleased that Elspeth has taken over the reins as they have thoroughly enjoyed working with her in the past.
Elspeth says ‘ I am very excited to take on the role of MD and would like to build on the choir’s excellent reputation I would be very pleased to welcome more singers to join with us this term – whether new to us or those who have sung with us in past concerts. We shall be performing a varied programme including the Faure Requiem which is a wonderful and inspiring work. I can assure would-be singers that they will receive a great deal of support from me as well as help from our regular members’.
