Music for a Summer’s Evening
Saturday 17 June, 7pm
St Augustine's Church, Penarth CF64 1BJ
Directed by Huw Williams
£15 / £7.50 under 18s & students
We are celebrating summer in style this year, with jazz and fun the themes of our summer concert. The evening will mark the choir’s return to a venue with which we have strong connections, St Augustine’s church, Penarth. The concert opens with famous Jazz musician, George Shearing’s, beautiful setting of Shakespeare poems in Music to Hear and the second half begins with Bob Chilcott’s Jazz Mass. Stanford’s elegant Song of the Fleet stand alongside ‘The Girl from Ipanema’, ‘ The way you look tonight’ and ‘The bare necessities’ in lively choral arrangements. Whitacre’s witty Animal Crackers precede the final piece, where the audience need to spot the tune in Grayston Ives’ fun ‘Name that tune’ which features popular melodies from across four centuries.
The choir will be directed by Huw Williams, and joined by pianist, Philip Aspden and bassist, Graham Tuck.
There will also be a Pimm's bar to help you soak up the summer atmosphere in style!
See you there!
