We are still riding high from the breath-taking achievement of Saturday night’s concert by the Nottingham Chamber Singers. After an ambitious and varied programme of choral music ranging from the 12th to the 21st Centuries, a packed house at St Martin’s Church, Sherwood could be heard cheering several streets away…we imagine!
Huge congratulations to all members of NCS, guest artists Henry Parkes (organ) and John Barker (saxophone), and MfE Assistant Artistic Director Rachel Parkes, under whose direction our wonderful chamber choir sparkled.
This week we celebrate the birthday of beloved Russian composer Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov, born on 18th March 1844. We have loved exploring this in-depth run down of the best recordings out there of NRK’s works!
- This Sunday 19th March – yes, Mother’s Day! – will see our youth ensembles – Nottingham Youth Band, East Midlands Youth Band, Nottingham Strictly Strings and East Midlands Youth String Orchestra – perform at the Grange Hall in Radcliffe on Trent at 3pm. Tickets available here!
Have a great week!
Your friends at MfE.
