A 40-strong Swiss choir will end their UK tour at a Fenland church with a candlelit concert – and you could win a pair of tickets to the show.

Kantorei comes to St Leonard’s Church, Leverington, on October 10 after visiting Cambridge and Edinburgh.

They regularly perform in Berne cathedral and the Prediger church in Zurich. Their aim and purpose is to promote liturgical and sacred choral music in all its varied forms.

In the past they have also visited Hungary, Romania, Germany and Italy and they view their tours as opportunities to find out about the culture and church history of their host country as well as performing, which is why they call their trips Singreise, meaning singing journey, rather than concert tours.

The Friends of Leverington Church will welcome Kantorei with a guided tour of St Leonard’s, before a supper at the village hall. The group will then perform in the church, from 7.30pm.

Mary Watt, chairman of the Friends of Leverington Church, said: “We feel so privileged to have been chosen as ‘the church off the beaten track’ and hope to attract a large audience to do justice to this unique occasion.

“We hope that as many people as possible will come along to experience this unique event. The following morning the choir will fly home and we hope they take with them fond memories of their UK trip and especially their last evening in Leverington.”
