Following on from our successful performance of Ahoy! Sing for the Mary Rose at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in 2016 for our 475th Anniversary, we are planning to perform another work by the same composer, Alexander L’Estrange, on Friday 23rd November at Brecon Cathedral, 7.00pm. Zimbe! (meaning “Sing!”) is the phenomenon which has rocked the choral world since its premiere in 2008. This 40-minute cantata combines adult SATB choir, unison children’s choir and five-piece band, fusing together African song and jazz and encouraging an amalgamation of different singing groups within one locality, in a spirit of community singing from which folk music arose.
If you love music, if you love singing and being involved in something BIG, then come and join us for rehearsals on Monday evenings 6.30pm – 8.00pm in Christ College Chapel (first rehearsal Monday 10th September). Novice singers are most welcome as well as the more experienced. In addition to a copy of the sheet music, you will be given a ‘Learning CD’ which will highlight your own individual voice part, so you can practise from the comfort of your armchair!
If you would like to take part, or if you have any questions, please do contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via School Reception on 01874 615440.
