Following the success of Orlando Chamber Choir's Garden of Delights in Central London, we are proud to announce that the Pimlott Foundation has invited us to repeat the concert in Colchester. We sing at the Old House which, for enhanced horticultural effect, is set within a beautiful garden.

Orlando Chamber Choir presents an all-sensory summer concert with the fragrance of flowers and the sound of Franco-Flemish Renaissance gardens. Our musical plantsmen include Antoine Brumel, Jacobus Clemens non Papa, Cipriano de Rore and Orlando di Lasso, all of whom captured melodies from the biblical gardens of the Song of Songs. There will be secular flora too – polyphony about roses, lilies, vines and other greenery - with Josquin des Prez's well-known cricket hiding amidst the leaves. Clement Janequin adds birdsong to this musical garden with singers mimicking starlings, blackbirds and the occasional nightingale. To root this oasis in today's Colchester we have seeded two contemporary garden-inspired compositions by Janet Wheeler, ready to bloom on the concert day.

Orlando's Garden of Delights at the Pimlott Foundation is open from 16:30 for a 17:00 concert, with drinks before and after to cater for all senses.

Internationally-renowned Dartington Summer School and Festival 2019

Internationally-renowned Dartington Summer School and Festival has announced its 2019 concert programme, with Joanna MacGregor as Artistic Director for her fifth and final year.

Through its four weeks, Dartington is to host more than 90 concerts and events. The concerts are open to Summer School course participants and the public alike, set against the backdrop of a medieval estate in the heart of Devon.This vibrant programme of events encompasses opera, jazz, folk, orchestral, chamber recitals, gospel, film music, and more.

Joanna MacGregor’s 2019 programme sweeps a broad range of musical collaboration - as her final year as Artistic Director she is gifting Dartington audiences a personal and intimate series of performances. Highlights include composers and music MacGregor has found profoundly influential. Among them are the NewYork street musician Moondog (whose work MacGregor was so passionate about she recorded 14 new arrangements on the album Sidewalk Dances) aired with Bach’s Art of Fugue; Beethoven’s magnificent Choral Fantasy and Piazzolla’s sizzling tango-études; Benjamin Britten’s Turn of the Screw with Tom Randle as Peter Quint, and Saint Nicolas conducted by Steuart Bedford; John Cage’s iconic Musicircus, and Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring.

The programme also features conductors Stephen Barlow, Laurence Cummings and Graeme Jenkins, mixed media performance poet Caroline Bergvall, pianist and author Alfred Brendel, vocal ensemble Stile Antico, Czech string group Škampa Quartet and Harrison Birtwistle’s 85th birthday celebrations - one of Europe’s leading figures in contemporary music. MacGregor has also commissioned Eleanor Alberga to write a new work for large choir and piano, with a text by Alice Oswald.
