£6 – £7.50

Event Navigation

CELEBRATE! with the hugely popular ‘The New Chamber Choir’.

Conducted by Paul Hudson.

The choir will be joined by the talented young trumpet soloist Lucy Heeley.

The concert is called ‘Celebrate!’ – but just what is being celebrated is up to the audience!  It could be the delights of summer in the countryside; it could be love, or sleep, or old age – there are musical celebrations of them all.  Or it could just be a celebration of the wonderful variety of music from more than 500 years.

The earliest piece is a silly little song about a cricket, published in 1505.  The most recent is the beautiful Quanta Qualia from Patrick Hawes’ 2011 album ‘Blue on Blue’.  As well as pieces for solo trumpet, the programme will include:

  • Parry’s great anthem I Was Glad (sung at every British coronation since 1902)
  • An arrangement of The Beatles’ When I’m 64
  • The traditional American spiritual I Wanna Die Easy
  • Part of Purcell’s 1692 version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in which the fairies attack the drunken poet
  • Scott Joplin’s The Entertainer, arranged for voices

Saturday 13th July at 7.30pm.

St Michael and All Angels’ Church, Hathersage.

All proceeds in aid of Friends of the Peak District.

Admission: £7.50 (concessions: £6.00).
