The University Choir's annual spring concert.

About this event

Eleanor Graff-Baker – Conductor
Elizabeth Paling – Accompanist
Victoria Norman – Solo cello

Join our University Choir for a concert of two halves.

In the first half the Choir will be in a reflective mood as they perform Requiem written by Matthew Coleridge in 2014-15 shortly after he became a father. With (in his words) "this effervescent new life, often in the same room" while he wrote, his focus was on "an intimate and particularly human response to the text....a comforting voice". It is a deeply moving work and has become one of the UK’s most popular new choral works.

In the second half, rejoice with the choir as they sing some familiar favourites by Handel, Phipps, Lloyd Webber & Barlow and Graham & Lovland. You'll be standing on mountains and walking on stormy seas....

Once again, the choir is delighted to be joined by members of LSU Classical who will be accompanying part of the programme.

All are welcome.

Tickets available on the door (subject to availability), cash sales only.
