Medici Choir are celebrating their 60th anniversary this year. We started as the United Hospitals Festival Choir for the Festival of Britain in 1951 under the baton of Colin Ratcliffe. I'm currently compiling a history of the choir (subsequently reincarnated as the United Hospitals Choir and Medici Choir) and would love to know more about the early years. Also, if anyone can shed light on current whereabouts of our erstwhile conductor (subsequently worked with the CBSO and Northern Sinfonia) please let me know.
United Hospitals Festival Choir and Colin Ratcliffe - information needed!
If you have any anecdotes, information about important milestone concerts or photographs/memorabilia you would be happy to share, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
