Our Autumn 2023 Concert is a beautiful, rousing, joyous and uplifting programme of Classical Greats from the 1960’s.
Ariel Ramirez’s ‘Misa Criolla’: with its vibrant accompaniment celebrates the uplifting beats and beautiful melodies and rhythms of Argentinian Folk Music; combining sacred mass with the deeply-rooted musical rituals and dances of Latin America.
Leonard Bernstein’s ‘West Side Story Choral Selection’: displays the rhythmic colours of Puerto Rican culture jostling against the jazz of modern New York, in favourites such as – ‘I Fell Pretty’, ‘America’ and ‘Maria’.
And, Bernstein’s ‘Chichester Psalms’ is altogether life-affirming and hopeful, with its combination of Hebrew and Christian choral tradition, and bright, energetic, yet accessible style.
As a celebration of musical and cultural traditions from around the world – there is something for everyone.
