Ruddington & District Choral Society will be performing music by some of the great classical composers at their spring concert. The programme takes its name from ‘Music to hear’ by George Shearing (composer of ‘Lullaby of Broadway’), who used Shakespearean sonnets for his lyrics.
The Society will also be singing Vaughan Williams’ ‘Five Mystical Songs’ and Rutter’s joyful ‘This is the Day’- the latter composed for the Royal Wedding in 2011. Music by Rutter, Parry and Stanford, plus solo items, will complete the programme. The concert will be conducted by Paul Hayward, with Michael Overbury as the accompanist.
‘Music to Hear’ takes place on Saturday 20 May at 7:30pm, at St Peter’s Church in Ruddington. Tickets are £10, to include a glass of wine or a soft drink and a programme, and are available by calling 0115 921 1451, or on the door.
