Upcoming Events › Choral
On Saturday July 6th, in Emmanuel Church, Shepherds Lane, Stoughton, GU2 9SJ, Chantry Singers will be joined by Guitarist Andrew Crowdy and Pianist Angelina Palmblad in a concert of American Music.
The tour will travel from South to North America, beginning with the famous “Misa Criolla” by Argentine composer Ramírez and onto one of Peru's greatest Baroque composers, Juan de Araujo.. The tour makes its way north by way of a Mexican lullaby, to “El Cóndor Pasa”, originally a South American instrumental piece, made most famous by Simon and Garfunkel for their 1965 track (If I Could)”.
For the second half of the concert, we make our way firmly into the North, with a celebration of the music of Gershwin. "A Gershwin Portrait" includes excerpts from Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris together with his most famous songs, including "I got Rhythm", “Summertime", "They Can’t Take That Away From Me", and "Someone to Watch Over Me".Find out more »
