Clare College Choir
Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is delighted to be hosting the return of Clare College Choir to St Mary’s Church as a fundraiser for the theatre after last year’s sell-out concert. This is truly life-affirming music, join us for an unforgettable sonic experience from the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge conducted by Graham Ross, as they perform a sumptuous programme of music spanning centuries of choral excellence (Tue 17 Apr).
The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge has gained an international reputation as one of the world’s leading university choirs. In addition to its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College chapel, the Choir keeps an active schedule recording, broadcasting, and performing. The Choir’s 2017/18 season includes Handel’s Messiah with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Mozart’s Requiem with the Manchester Camerata in Bridgewater Hall, concert appearances across the UK and overseas at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, and across the United States of America, France, Malta and Gozo. In 2017 the Choir staged a major project to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, performing eight Bach Cantatas culminating in a recording for Harmonia Mundi.
The programme explores the rich tapestry of poly-choral Renaissance works by composers closely with the city of Rome, interspersed with English motets, partsongs and childhood lyrics. As an extra special treat, tickets for the front pews of St Mary’s Church will also include a pre-show drinks reception with the conductor Graham Ross.
Clare College Choir are at St Mary’s Church, Bury on Tuesday 17th April. Tickets cost £20 – £15 (£30 for front pews and drinks reception) and are on sale at the Box Office, call 01284 769505, book online at www.theatreroyal.org/clare-college-choir or visit the theatre in person.
