NFC – A Summer Celebration

25th June 2016 - 26th June 2016

Music for Everyone invites you to join with the Nottingham Festival Chorus to sing in their Summer course and concert.

The music:
Andrew Carter Benedicite. First performed in 1989 and inspired by the Benedicite carvings inspired by nature in the restored vault of York Minster, Benedicite is a tuneful setting of verses from the Benedicite canticle in the Book of Common Prayer – ‘All the World, Praise the Lord’. Scored for SATB chorus, full orchestra and children’s chorus, the work is a joy to sing.

Rutter Gloria. An exuberant and exciting setting of familiar words by the master of melody, John Rutter, this work is sure to set the hairs on the back of your neck tingling!

The Choir:
The Nottingham Festival Chorus is Music for Everyone’s flagship choir. Numbering over 200 voices, singers come from all over the East Midlands and further afield. There are no auditions; all that’s required is a willlingness to work hard and a sense of fun to produce performances of a high standard.

Music for the course is sent out in advance along with a rehearsal CD to give singers the opportunity to become familiar with the music before the workshop day. Optional sectional rehearsals will be held at Nottingham Trent University – please see provisional timetable below.
