Rites of spring: new brochure published on-line

The new brochure for Spring into Summer has now been published on-line, with details of all the musical events at the University over the coming months.

The Lunchtime Concert series kicks off with Stravinsky’s four-hands piano version of The Rite of Spring performed by the internationally-acclaimed duo of Peter Hill and Benjamin Frith; later in the term, the Colyer-Fergusson Cathedral Concert includes more Stravinsky, as the Symphony Orchestra plays the 1919 version of the Firebird Suite alongside Mozart’s Requiem with the University Chorus; the Concert and Big Band will present their usual barn-storming Gulbenkian Theatre concert in February; the Chamber Choir explore choral music from England, Scotland and Wales in the Cathedral Crypt in February and will give a second concert, in Wye, in April; the Camerata performs Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll in March; plus three Jazz @ 5’s.

Big Band team up with St. Edmund’s School for a charity gig in March, and keep an eye out later in the term for details about the Cecilian Choir concert and also the Music Theatre Society’s annual production at The Playhouse, Whitstable.

It promises to be a cultural cornucopia: don’t miss it! Click here to download the brochure as a PDF.
