Rousing finale to the term

Feed URL:

The University Chorus and Orchestra came together on Saturday for a rousing, Italianate end to the autumn term, including Vivaldi’s evergreen Gloria, featuring soloists from the University Music Scholarship students, Cimarosa’s Magnificat, the overture to Verdi’s Nabucco and Respighi’s homage to Rossini, La boutique fantastque.

It struck us, in the afternoon rehearsal, that this was the first time since last December that the Chorus and Orchestra had come together to perform in the concert-hall – March sees them both in Canterbury Cathedral, and they each perform separately in the Summer Gala – so this was something of an anniversary performance!
