2019 starts with a 'Classical Journey' directed from the cello by our Honorary Friend, Richard Tunnicliffe, as we explore the music of CPE Bach, JC Bach, Haydn and Mozart on period instruments.
We are delighted to welcome back mezzo soprano Diana Moore whose rich and sensitive tones captivated us all in 2017 and then in September the exceptional young countertenor, Tim Morgan (ex-Norwich Cathedral Chorister) for a programme of Vivaldi. Sopranos Jayne May-Sysum, and Sarahjane Stephen both make a come back, Jayne in partnership with our own musicologist Dr Simon Heighes, for more Live Programme Notes in March, and Sarahjane with lutenist, Arngeir Hauksson, in August when we return to the atmospheric and beautiful Binham Priory.
In October Lucia Froihoffer, the Austrian violinist with the most lyrical and free style is leading a programme of 'Lully and the French'..in fact at your request, so please flock along with all your friends for an evening of Lucia's dancing violin!
Our June concert will feature the winner of this years 'Losh-Atkinson Historic Sounds Composition Competition' and a programme of music with connecting themes. Some of these connections will be very apparent ..and some more tenuous! Lots to enjoy for sure with woks by Rebel, Telemann, Seixus, Handel and Corelli amongst others.
We are always thrilled to be invited to continue our successful and happy relation ship with the musicians of the Cathedral led by Master of Music, Ashley Grote. In April there is another chance to be part of JS Bach's poignant St John Passion. In November the sounds of Handel's oratorio Israel in Egypt will fill the Cathedral, and once again we end the year with our timeless, candlelit Messiah.
So do join us; we would love to see you there.
