Past Diary 2001-2005 (Choral and Opera Groups Only)

This is a list of past concerts by choruses/opera groups from the years 2001 to 2005. Use the buttons below to switch to other periods gone by, or to the list of future events.

Project C21   Work has now commenced with the aim of filling in the performance history of as many groups as possible back to the beginning of the century. Not all groups have this information on their websites, and some have only partial information, but it is hoped that by Autumn 2018 all the information we can find will have been entered into our database: until then, you will find the data appearing group by group. Check the special ‘Project C21′ page for latest information on which groups’ data has been entered, and the names of groups where the information is unavailable or incomplete: if you are involved with any of these groups and can fill in the gaps, it would be much appreciated!
