The Aurin Girls' Choir

Returning by popular request, tickets are now on sale for what promises to be a stunning evening of choral singing on Thursday June 22nd. The concert at St Mary’s Church, Bruton at 7.30pm is the first of Aurin choir’s 2017 tour.

The Aurin Girls’ Choir, from the Kodály Music School, Hungary, has won numerous first prizes in international competitions, two gold medals in the World Choir Games in China and first prize at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod.

They have enviable musical training under the direction of their conductor, László Durányik. The aim of the choir is to present good practice in the art of singing, by representing Kodály’s home town, Kecskemét, in a fitting way all over the world, and to spread Hungarian culture at its best. The dedication of these students is remarkable; their rehearsal schedule is uncompromising and intensive, participating in daily music lessons as well as many other activities.

The choir’s conductor, László Durányik, studied at the famous Liszt Academy in Budapest, and has ambitious plans for the choir. They have a large repertoire of sacred and secular music, with a special focus on works by contemporary Hungarian composers. He has also won many prizes for conducting. This year’s tour will also include concerts in Yorkshire, Liverpool, Stamford and Chipping Campden.

This will be a highly colourful concert: sacred and secular music, Hungarian folk arrangements, spirituals and light pieces. Last year’s concert was a sell-out so please get your tickets now! They're available from Bruton Pharmacy, Church Bridge Stores, or phone 01749 812281.
