Award winning Cambridge choir to sing in aid of CBM UK

Posted on: Thursday, 8th June, 2017

As part of CBM UK’s 21st birthday celebrations this year, Cambridge Chorale, former finalists in the BBC Radio 3 Choir of the Year competition, will be singing in aid of CBM’s work.

Award winning choir, Cambridge Chorale will be performing a selection of unaccompanied choral works on the theme of light on Saturday, 24 June 2017. The “Lux aeterna” concert will be conducted by Owain Park, Cambridge Chorale’s Music Director in the beautiful surroundings of St John’s College Chapel, Cambridge.

Throughout the years, composers and artists alike have been drawn to the theme of light and the stars, symbolising birth, purity and revelation. Following this theme, Cambridge Chorale will be performing pieces by Eriks Esenvalds, Gyorgy Ligeti, Eric Whitacre, Cheryl Frances-Hoad, John Rutter, Charles Wood and Aleksandr Grechaninov.

“We are absolutely delighted and so grateful to Cambridge Chorale for helping to raise funds and awareness of CBM’s work. This is a great opportunity to enjoy wonderful music while also helping transform the lives of people who are blind or living with other disabilities in the world’s poorest places. Special thanks also to our volunteer Gill Godber for making all the arrangements. The evening promises to be a special one and we hope to see as many of you there as possible,” said Jacqueline Atkinson, CBM UK’s Community Officer.

Come and be enthralled in the rendition of these beautiful pieces. Details below:
