Rehearsals are going really well for our next concert. Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society and orchestra are delighted to be returning to the Auden Theatre, Holt for our Summer Gala Concert on Saturday 15 July at 7.30 pm.
The choir, directed by David Ballard, will perform Joseph Haydn’s lyrical oratorio The Seasons. As the title suggests this exciting work takes us on a journey through the four seasons – Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter – with lively and atmospheric music very much in the style of his earlier, and perhaps better known, oratorio The Creation. The audience will get to experience the changing scene throughout a year in mid-Europe in the early 1800’s.
The work will be sung in English – as was the original performance – using the latest libretto which allows Haydn’s original wit, humour and musical genius to shine through. The choir will be joined by 3 splendid soloists: Zaira Palumbo (soprano), Lawrence Thackeray (tenor) and Tom Appleton (bass).
Prior to the concert the audience are invited to picnic on the lawns between the Auden Theatre and the new Britten Building. The bar will be open from 6.30 pm.
