Things are a littler quieter this week as it’s the half term holiday – all regular rehearsing groups are having a break, it’ll be back to business as normal next week!
Preparations are underway for our next concert, a Jubilee Celebration with the Nottingham Festival Chorus and Concert Orchestra. Filled with music for royal occasions, this concert is on Sunday 26th June, 3.30pm at the Albert Hall, Nottingham. Tickets are now on sale! https://www.music-for-everyone.org/event/jubilee-celebration-concert/
With all the excitement around Nottingham Forest this week (ask the football fans!) you may have forgotten that this week is the celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee!
There is so much music to choose from to celebrate these royal occasions that we didn’t know where to start! Thankfully, Classic FM have done the hard work for us and put together a list of the top 15 for the Platinum Jubilee, guaranteed to not just motivate your Monday, but take you all the way through the Bank Holiday weekend… enjoy: https://www.classicfm.com/discover-music/best-platinum-jubilee-classical-music/
We particularly like the new commission by Thomas Hewitt Jones, especially for the Platinum Jubilee (no.14 on the list) ‘In Our Service’ and Holst ‘I Vow to Thee My Country’ (no.1 on the list) Which is your favourite?
- Sticking with the royal celebration theme, here is an ‘alternative’ version of the Hallelujah Chorus, as performed by ‘silent monks’ AKA High School students! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCFCeJTEzNU
Have a good week!
