Carlton Male Voice Choir

CMVC is a long established TTBB choir based in Carlton, Nottingham with nearly 100 singing members.

Our choir is always looking to welcome new members of all ages and vocal ranges to join our ranks. Under the leadership of our Musical Director, Ian Watts, the choir is endeavouring to become recognised as outstanding and we are particularly seeking to strengthen our Second Tenor/Tenor 2 section.

Many of our choir members, including myself, also belong to mixed choirs and find the diversity of singing experience extremely complementary and enjoyable.

New singers would be very welcome to just come along to one of our Wednesday evening practice sessions to see and hear what we are all about.

This invitation does not extend solely to Tenor 2s. We would welcome new members of all vocal ranges.

Further information is available on our website or interested singers could contact me directly during evenings and weekends on 0115 9816294

Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra

Saturday 23 June, Southwell Minster, 7.30pm

Music of awesome beauty by Richard Wagner, Richard Strauss and Debussy is offered by the Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra in the wonderful Southwell Minster on Saturday 23rd June at 7.30pm.

We start with Wagner’s Prelude and Liebestod which takes music from the opening and very end of the opera Tristan and Isolde, encapsulating the essence of romantic love.   Strauss wrote several magnificent tone poems in the 1880s including Tod and Verklarung (Death and transfiguration) which concentrates on the glorious transfiguration following death.  Both the Wagner and Strauss include stirring and beautiful music!

We are playing Debussy’s marvellous symphonic piece La Mer, which is one of the finest orchestral evocations of the moods of the sea.   We also bring you four of the twenty-four piano preludes written by Debussy and orchestrated by British composer Colin Matthews, commissioned by Sir Mark Elder and the Halle orchestra.

Tickets at £15, £11, and £5 for children and students are available from The Cathedral Shop, Southwell 01636 812933, via the websites and as well as from the Royal Centre Box Office, Nottingham 0115 989 5555.
