Pop music has existed for ever, but how often do we remind ourselves of that? Composers of popular music have a special and long-lived impact. Camerata is delighted to be back in 2022, bringing you a romp of pop music through the ages, conducted and accompanied by our versatile Matthew Howes. We begin with madrigals (e.g Fair Phyllis and her Amyntas, The Silver Swan), progress through the 19th century with opera (Verdi, Puccini, Wagner), and on into the 20th century (Stanford, Gershwin). Then we move to more recent favourites, with jazz and pop classics including Chilcott, The Beatles, and Billy Joel. What a terrific variety this is, and we are so enjoying preparing it. We hope very much to see you there. Tickets will be available as usual from choir members or through our website.
For your own protection, as we are still in the orange light setting at this point we ask you, our audience, to wear masks. Sadly, this also means that we will not being offering our usual supper in the hall afterwards. Be aware, though, that the rules do not require the choir to sing in masks.
