Ely Consort – Carmina Burana – Sat.29 March – Hayward Theatre, Ely

Ely Consort - Carmina Burana

Ely Consort

The powerful opening of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is one of the most instantly recognisable pieces of music of all time. Come and hear the complete work performed by the combined forces of Ely Consort, St Mary’s Primary School Choir, percussionists from the King’s School, and a star line up of soloists: Clare Lloyd Griffiths (soprano), Ashley Harries (alto) and Ricardo Panela (baritone), all accompanied by the brilliant international duo-pianists Antoinette and Claire Cann. The cast of one hundred musicians will bring this most vivid of choral pieces to life in spectacular fashion.

In the first half of the concert, Ely Consort will sing Tippett’s moving arrangement of spirituals from A Child of our Time; hot on the heels of their performance at London’s Barbican Centre in the Barnardo’s National Choir Competition, St Mary’s Choir will sing their two competition songs, and Antoinette and Claire will perform Lutoslawski’s dazzling Variations on a theme of Paganini.

Don’t miss out on the chance to hear this fabulous music!
