About

The Croydon Philharmonic Choir is delighted to mark its return to Fairfield Halls with a performance of Verdi’s Requiem, one of the most dramatic and sumptuous works in the entire choral canon. The Croydon Philharmonic Choir is Croydon’s largest and longest-established classical choir – it was founded in 1914 – and the Verdi Requiem will see it at its very best.

With guest singers from other choirs, it will be over 100 strong on the night, with the further bonus of performing with the superb London Mozart Players, restored to their own home venue once more. Music director David Gibson will be conducting choir and orchestra, and top-flight soloists will include the brilliant soprano Erica Eloff, one of the choir’s vice-presidents. It promises to be a wonderful celebratory occasion – not to be missed!

Venue Info

Phoenix Concert Hall

Designed as a scaled down version of the Royal Festival Hall, (both venues shared the same acoustic consultant, Hope Bagenal), our Concert Hall is recognised internationally for its fantastic and bright acoustics and has “…some of the finest acoustics in Europe” as stated by renowned conductor Leopold Stokowski.

The Phoenix Concert Hall will once again play host to the London Mozart players as resident Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the English Chamber Orchestra.

 

 


Phoenix Pianos

Phoenix Pianos - Fairfield Halls

Phoenix Pianos are a British company that pride themselves on leading the piano manufacture industry with new, high-end piano technologies.

Founder and Chairman, Richard Dain, is a man of impressive engineering pedigree and tireless vision, who in the early 2000s began to combine his passion for pianos and music with his wide-ranging engineering skills.

A series of ground-breaking innovations have led to the most technologically advanced pianos in the world.

The Phoenix mission is twofold:

  1. To once again offer inspiration to artists in new levels of acoustic performance, after a century of near complete stagnation within the piano industry.
  2. To make highly practical improvements to piano design, such as climate resistance, longevity of parts, reliability of performance, and touch response.

Phoenix instruments benefit from:

  • Carbon fibre and Kevlar soundboard designs
  •  A new highly responsive action comprising 3D printed and carbon fibre parts
  • Patented bridge technology to improve the power and efficiency of acoustic transfer, giving artists access to a wider dynamic range

The installation of a fleet of Phoenix instruments in the Fairfield Halls, and their sponsoring of the Phoenix Academy, represent a very special moment for both piano design and manufacture, and for this premier venue.
