Burnham and Highbridge Choral Society perform at Royal Albert Hall

A group of 11 singers from the Burnham and Highbridge Choral Society travelled to London on Sunday (8th July) to take part in an unforgettable performance at The Royal Albert Hall.

The group, pictured, sang with Britain's largest choral society, The Really Big Chorus, during the world premier of the new Karl Jenkins, Olympics inspired piece 'The Gods of Olympus'.

Other items performed during the Singday 2012 concert, held to raise funds for the National Autistic Society, included Karl Jenkins 'The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace' and Eric Coates 'The London Suite'.

Brain Kay conducted the choir and the orchestra was the London Festival Orchestra.

A spokesperson from Burnham and Highbridge Choral Society told "Not only was this a really exciting chance to sing in The Albert Hall, but to be singing in a world premier of a Karl Jenkins piece just made it so amazing."

The work has been awarded an 'Inspire' mark by LOCOG (London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games).

The Really Big Chorus is Britain's largest choral society, made up of singers from hundreds of different choirs all over the UK as well as thousands of individuals.
