152 was founded at the end of 2016 and claims to bring something different to the local music scene.
This group’s rather mundane name is part of its goal, to make sure the focus is on the composers and their music, in their terms ‘The Real Rock Stars’.
152’s core membership was formed from the Alicante Chamber Choir, Contrapunctum, which is constantly growing with local professional musicians from the area.
John Edwards, 152’s bass soloist said, ‘It has been so satisfying to work with such professional musicians who can understand the importance of the amazing composers we are working with’.
152’s first performance ‘Walk in the Way of Faith’ is a Baroque concert. It is at 8pm on Wednesday 15th March at the Salón de Actos de la Facultad de Educación at licante University.
The programme includes Bach Cantata 152 ‘Tritt auf die Glaubensbahn’ and Purcell Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary as well as Baroque solos and instrumental music from both composers.
