University of Plymouth Choral Society and Sinfonia Summer Concert

For this concert, the University of Plymouth Choral Society and Sinfonia have chosen three contrasting works of Mozart, and a favourite Bruckner motet.

The programme is led by Musical Director Alice Dennis, BEM.

Programme: Mozart - Requiem Bruckner - Locus Iste Mozart - Eine...
