University choir concert takes musical journey across stage, screen and surf
The Loughborough University Choir will journey across the ages as part of their upcoming spring concert.
On 17 May, ‘Songs from the Stage, Screen and Surf’ will take audiences through Borodin's C12th Russia (Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor), Verdi's ancient Egypt (Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves from Nabucco) and Gounod's C16th Germany (Soldiers' Chorus from Faust).
There will be a chance to enjoy Victorian drama with Gilbert & Sullivan and join in with some Music Hall favourites, before fast-forwarding to a different scene in 1960's California.
The popular and long-established University Choir is open to all staff and students, as well as the general public aged 16 and over.
Producing a fun and varied set of live events across the year, the group meet every Monday during term time in the Cope Auditorium. Those who would like to get involved can email LU Arts for more information.
The University Choir Spring Concert takes place at Cope Auditorium, Loughborough University on Wednesday 17 May at 7:30pm.
Tickets are £7 or £5 for concessions and students. They can be booked online here, or at the LU Arts Box Office at Loughborough Town Hall on 01509 231914.
