NCS March Concert

16th March

7.30pm, St Mary’s Church, Clifton, Saturday 16th March 2024

Nottingham Chamber Singers present:

Angels, Dreams and Flying Machines

Join NCS for an evening of flight, fantasy and winged creatures, featuring poetry and musical works by Whitacre, Panufnik, Mendelssohn, Vaughan-Williams and many more!


Prepare to take flight with the Nottingham Chamber Singers as they soar,

wheel and glide through a constellation of madrigals, motets and part-songs

all on a theme of flying, wings and dreams. Hear the ravishing angels of Aleotti and Mendelssohn, drift away over hill and dale to the cloud capp’d towers

with VaughanWilliams, and take a daring leap with the ingenious inventor

Leonardo da Vinci in Eric Whitacre’s epic choral poem Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine. This programme, interspersed with words from some of Great

Britain’s most celebrated poets, promises to enthral and delight, so book early to avoid disappointment!


Formerly known as the East of England Singers, the Nottingham Chamber Singers have a busy concert schedule performing works across the full choral range, from William Byrd to Judith Weir. The choir’s refreshingly dynamic and committed performances continue to receive critical and public acclaim, led by Assistant conductor and Music for Everyone’s Assistant Artistic Director, Rachel Parkes.


Rachel Parkes was born and raised in Northamptonshire. She received her early musical education through the Royal School of Church Music and Northamptonshire County Performing Arts Service, and went on to gain a first class Honours degree in Music, and later a Masters in Music and Performance, from Royal Holloway, University of London. During her studies Rachel studied singing with Margaret Cable and Jessica Cash, she now receives coaching from Lynne Wayman.
