The Music:

Experience a programme of thrilling repertoire by a 100+ strong choir and full symphony orchestra as they perform Glorias in all shapes and sizes by Poulenc, Rutter and others!

From the delicate to the extreme, from the bombastic to the intimate, this fantastic concert featuring over 200 musicians has it all! After the stage is set in Debussy’s La Cathedrale Engloutie, fanfares rain down from on high in the first half with music by Rutter and Weir before French Soprano, Clara Orif, lends her sweet lyricism to Poulenc’s breath-taking setting and the Chamber Singers take our breaths away in the second.

The Performers:

The Nottingham Festival Chorus is Music for Everyone’s flag-ship choir, a large-scale four-part chorus performing major classical and twentieth-century works, with the Nottingham Concert Orchestra. There are three intensive and highly enjoyable events per year, from a one day workshop to a full weekend course and concert. The concert will be conducted by Artistic Director Alex Robinson.




Soprano Clara Orif currently performs with Royal Academy Opera and is an Oxford Lieder Emerging Artist. Born in Paris into a Scottish family and based in London, Clara started out her singing career at a very early age at the renowned Maîtrise de Radio France, under the direction of Sofi Jeannin. Clara is a winner of the Richard Lewis / Jean Shanks Award and the Isabel Jay prize (2022). She was a semifinalist in the 2023 Marmande International Singing Competition. Clara is generously supported by the London Women’s Clinic Foundation Award.
