King’s Lynn Festival Chorus to perform classic works and Beatles songs at concert
AN evening of English splendour will be guaranteed when the King’s Lynn Festival Chorus dips into its vast canon of music for a Spring Concert.
The group’s music director Tom Appleton will lead the performance at St Nicholas’ Chapel in King’s Lynn on Saturday May 14.
The concert celebrates some of the huge variety of music which has been written since the reign of Queen Elizabeth. The works of Tallis, Byrd, Purcell, Britten, Walton and Vaughan Williams have all contributed greatly to the English Choral scene and this programme will feature many of their finest pieces.
To balance the concert the Chorus will perform Vaughan Williams’ Three Shakespeare Songs and a light-hearted selection of swingle arrangements of well-known Beatles songs.
Alexandra Saunders (soprano) in her final year at the Birmingham Conservatoire, will be joined by John Bryon (assistant music director) on piano for a selection of pieces.
