A community choir that has been allowing amateur singers to find their voice since 1973 performed two classic 20th century works at Eton College School Hall on Saturday.

The Royal Free Singers is an amateur choir with a membership of around 150 who serve under conductor Ben Gunner.

Members were joined by the Orchestra of London at Eton College to perform Richard Strauss' poignant Four Last Songs with soprano Susan Piggott as the soloist, while in the second part of the programme she was joined by baritone Andrew Davies to perform Vaughan Williams’ stirring A Sea Symphony.

The Royal Free Singers meet and rehearse every Wednesday evening at Trevelyan School Hall - new members are always welcome.

As well as termly concerts, there are tours, plus a trip abroad every two years, weekend tours and day trips all involving singing.

The choir’s next concert will be on Saturday, 29th June at Windsor Parish Church at 7.30 p.m., when they will be recalling music from their tours to Eastern Europe.
