Stevenage Oak at 70
On 11th November 1946 the Designation Order for Stevenage New Town was confirmed after a public enquiry on the Draft version.
With this 70th birthday approaching Stevenage is organising a large festival of events starting in June and
finishing just after the 11th November with a Finale Concert.
Stevenage Choral Society is proud to announce that our Autumn concert (see below for details and to book) forms part of that celebration.

Autumn 2016 Concert - By the Riverside
Traditional Songs of London and beyond
We are at the Stevenage Music Centre in Nobel School for this concert.
Order E-Tickets here:
The main single work of this concert is Bob Chilcott's Cantata "Songs and Cries of London Town". This
piece is a collection of folk songs and cries about (or would be heard in) London. "Come buy" is based on 17th Century
street cries, "The flower of cities" based on writing of William Dunbar (15th-16th Centry), "London Bells" based on
18th Centrury texts (but some of this will be a little familiar!), William Wordsworth's poem "Composed on Westminster
Bridge,September 3, 1802" and finally "Good Morrow" - the text being 17th century (but adapted a bit!). It's a lovely mix of bright and active pieces with lovely melodies.
The rest of the material will be folk song arrangements by John Rutter and Ralph Vaughan Williams. It should be an evening full of wonderful melodies and great tunes....see you there!
