Summer Concert

Shakespeare in Song
St Andrew's Church, Shottery
Saturday 15th June 2024 at 7:30pm

Our summer concerts are an opportunity to sing something different, and this summer we have a more relaxed and less formal programme than our usual classical fare. We are singing songs by contemporary composers setting words by William Shakespeare.. The principal work will be a jazzy compilation of songs and sonnets by George Shearing.

The programme will include

  • Songs and Sonnets from Shakespeare by George Shearing
  • 'I know a bank where the wild thyme blows' by Sarah Quartel
  • 'If music be the food of love' by Richard Allain
  • 'The bird of dawning' by Bob Chilcott
  • ‘Touch her soft lips and part’ by William Walton

Conductor: Oliver Neal Parker
Accompanist: Rachel Bird
