Three Spires Singers return to Truro Cathedral for the first of two performances of a special concert to mark the choir’s 40th Anniversary.
They will join forces with internationally renowned performers of the arts: actor Sam West, pianist Cordelia Williams, counter-tenor Rory McCleery and soprano Rachel Nicholls. The Three Spires Orchestra will be out in force, conducted by Christopher Gray.
As well as a performance of Ravel’s wonderful Piano Concerto in G, the programme includes Poulenc’s energetic and tuneful Gloria. The main work will be the much anticipated newly commissioned work by composer Graham Fitkin, Humphry Davy – The Age of Aspiration. The famous Cornish scientist, inventor, philosopher, poet and painter has provided a rich vein of material for this fascinating and accessible 21st Century musical composition. Be prepared to be amused, intrigued, provoked and moved by this musical work!
Three Spires Singers will be joined by the Cornwall Girls’ Choir and Cornwall Boys’ Choir.
Seats will be Unreserved in three zones: Nave £25, Gallery £20 and Side-Aisles £18 (all tickets include programme). Under-18s’ tickets will be free on the door.
