Our joint concert with Gloria from Dublin
Sat 8th April 2017, 7:30pm at St John’s Waterloo
Inspiration for the concert is Monteverdi’s 450th anniversary, and we’re planning that “Beatus Vir” will be performed as a joint piece by Diversity Choir and our friends from Dublin, Gloria.
Our theme will be Theatre for our other pieces, as Monteverdi was one of the earliest composers to fully develop opera writing. Our Musical Director, Jan Rautio, is considering the following other pieces so far:
– Mozart’s “Ave Verum”
– The “Easter Hymn” from “Cavalleria Rusticana”
– The “humming chorus” from “Madam Butterfly”
Gloria are planning to perform:
– A mixture of traditional Irish folk songs and ballads
– Classical pieces such as Cantique De Jean Racine
– Some modern contemporary pieces by the Pentatonix
– Some Abba disco classics!
Stay tuned for ticket information next March.
