Orchestra da Camera

Conductor Richard Laing

Tenor Christopher Turner

We are very much looking forward to performing Britten's mesmerising cantata St Nicolas, featuring the amazing tenor soloist Christopher Turner and choristers from Southwell Minster. We can expect storms, murder, resurrections and other miracles in this wonderful story, which is by turns both terrifying and comic. There is even an opportunity for audience participation! The rest of the concert features a favourite by Elgar, a rarely-performed gem by Vaughan Williams, and haunting music by Arvo Pärt and Max Richter. This is not one to miss!
