Britten Sinfonia - Beethoven Symphony Cycle (No. 9)

Britten Sinfonia
Thomas Adès, conductor

Gerald Barry: The Eternal Recurrence
Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 (choral)

Britten Sinfonia’s Beethoven Symphony Cycle, conducted by Thomas Adès, concludes with Beethoven’s mighty ‘choral’ symphony and Gerald Barry’s feverish The Eternal Recurrence.

Beethoven’s extraordinary Ninth Symphony is regarded by many as the finest of all symphonies, and its message of humanity, perhaps most famously encapsulated in the symphony’s Ode to Joy chorus, continues to resonate today (not least, as the anthem for the European Union). Here, Beethoven’s masterful celebration of the human race is paired with Gerald Barry’s The Eternal Recurrence, a brilliant, feverish setting of texts from Nietzsche’s philosophical novel Also sprach Zarathustra.

Top US Choir Strike The Right Note in the Heart of London

Morgan State University Choir
Eric Conway, director

Baltimore-based Morgan State University Choir heads to the UK in May, with a concert at the stunning church of St Anne and St Agnes on 28 May.

Previously, this top collegiate gospel choir were invited by First Lady Michelle Obama to perform at The White House for a televised music special, ‘Music in the Gospel Tradition’. The choir supported Aretha Franklin, who together sang in front of President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama.

The evening will be a wonderful mix of spiritual classics alongside arrangements of iconic songs by The Beatles, including ‘Penny Lane’ and ‘Let It Be’, in addition to excerpts from Gershwin’s ‘Porgy & Bess’ and Bernstein’s ‘Mass’.

100th anniversary of the School of Music at the University of Kentucky.

130 players between the ages of 18-30 will appear onstage in this spectacular evening, which begins with the University of Kentucky’s Wind Symphony, performing an exciting array of contemporary and traditional concert band compositions. Among the selections are Sousa’s The Stars and Stripes Forever, all movements of Grainger’s Lincolnshire Posy, and the world premiere of Wildcat Run by composer James M. Stephenson, who will be in attendance. Designed to be ‘nothing but solid fun for 6 minutes’, Wildcat Run is a commission that highlights every section of the Symphony, with hints of Stephen Foster’s “My Old Kentucky Home” – a nod to the University’s 100 year run.

The University of Kentucky’s Symphony Orchestra follows with the Berlioz stand-alone Roman Carnival Overture, and Dvořák’s famous Symphony No.9: From the New World, which premiered at Carnegie Hall in 1893.

Festival of Songs

International Choir Festival of Songs Olomouc was established in 1972 under the name Festival of Children's Choirs Olomouc. Since its beginning, the festival has been annually held by a traditional regional project. The name Festival of Songs came to be in 1977; at first it used to be strictly a platform for get-togethers of children's choirs through shows and concerts. In 1987, the international singing competition Iuventus Mundi Cantant saw the light of day; later, in 2002, it was restructured and renamed as international singing choir competition Mundi Cantant. Since 1987, the competition has been open to all categories of choirs.

Encore Chorale make their UK debut alongside the Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir

Encore Chorale


Encore Chorale will make their debut tour of the UK with a free concert alongside Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir at St James's Sussex Gardens on 5 June at 8pm.

Its founder Jeanne Kelly established Encore Chorale in 2001, after conducting a study that revealed involvement in artistic programmes helped older adults with their physical health, mental health and feelings of social inclusion. Since then, Encore Chorale has brought 'new feeling, new meaning' (The New York Times) into the lives of its members (of which everyone is over 55 years old).

They'll sing a mix of well-loved spiritual classics alongside some finger-snapping jazz gems and lesser-known folk songs. The two choirs will then join together at the close to present Rollo Dilworth's 'Take Me to the Water'.
