Come and join the fun and fabulous Ipswich Chamber Choir in a day of challenging but enjoyable choral singing, working on three rarely performed choral gems. The day will enable you to explore 400 years of choral masterpieces spanning from the sublime polyphony of Victoria's 'Officium Defunctorum' to the powerful emotion of MacMillan's 'Seven Last Words' via the bubbly Baroque fun of Bach's Advent Cantata.
Our talented Music Director Benedict Collins Rice has great skill at vocal coaching and interpretation. He will help us improve our vocal technique and guide us towards a beautiful and satisfying performance at the conclusion of the day.
Music: JS Bach's Advent Cantata BWV36, James MacMillan's Seven Last Words From The Cross and Tomas Luis de Victoria's Officium Defunctorum
Venue: St Andrew's Church, Rushmere St Andrew, Ipswich IP5 1DH. Large free car park a short walk from the church in The Street.
