Cupar Choral Society sings Brahms Requiem

Cupar Choral Society (CCS) is all set to perform A German Requiem by Johannes Brahms on Saturday, 13 April, after a rousing final rehearsal on Monday.

According to brand-new research, German is now the most sought-after language by UK employers. What better time for CCS to be at one with the zeitgeist and singEin Deutsches Requiemin the original German, 150 years after the first performance in 1869?

Michelle Sheridan Grant and Peter Grant, soloists, and Matthew Beetschen and Anne Holland, accompanists, will join CCS and Michael Segaud, Musical Director, for their 2019 Spring Concert at St John’s Church, Cupar.

Yet again, Cupar Choral Society offers a stunning line-up of soloists and musicians. Highlights of Peter Grant’s career as an operatic bass baritone, concert performer and exponent of Scots song include roles with the Royal Opera House and Scottish Opera and performing for 10,000 at the Scottish Proms Concert at Glamis Castle. Soprano Michelle Sheridan Grant’s international career takes in English National Opera, radio recitals and roles in Bermuda and the USA. Matthew Beetschen is now organist / choirmaster at Dunfermline Abbey after many years at Dunblane Cathedral. Anne Holland teaches piano at Strathallan School.
