GLORIOUS MUSIC OF LIGHT AND LOVE

 

 

A wonderful selection of Romantic and 20th-century Unaccompanied Choral Music takes centre stage courtesy of Noteworthy Voices, the town’s leading Chamber Choir, later this month.

 

The ensemble is busy rehearsing for its Spring 2022 concert which will take place at 7.30pm on Saturday 28th May 2022 at St Saviour’s Church, in South Street, Eastbourne.

 

Highlights of the programme include Bruckner's ' Sacred Motets', works by Rachmaninov and Gretchaninov and 20th-century compositions by John Rutter, John Tavener and Eric Whitacre.


We are led in this concert by Christopher Dixon, a professional opera and concert singer who trained at Clare College, Cambridge and The Royal Academy of Music.

 

Christopher has lived in Eastbourne for 15 years, having moved here whilst singing at Glyndebourne Festival Opera.  Christopher has sung solo roles for Welsh National Opera (including the title role in Tchaikovsky's 'Eugene Onegin') and Scottish Opera. He has also appeared as a concert soloist in the Royal Albert Hall. Alongside his performances as a singer he is a Choir Director and also teaches singing at Eastbourne College.

Christopher said: "I have been delighted to work with Noteworthy Voices on some of my favourite choral repertoire and also on music new to me as well as to them. The choir has worked immensely hard to prepare for this challenging, substantial programme.

"The Mother, The Child And The Light is a musical celebration of the Power Of The Feminine, of A New Way Of Being and of A Path Out Of The Darkness. These principles have a place at the heart of all religions and perhaps have never been more needed in the world than they are now."

Tickets at £10 are available on the door (children go free) or by emailing noteworthyvoiceseastbourne@gmail.com.
