About The Event
Join Granta Chorale for a summer’s evening of choral music. Our programme takes inspiration from the beauty of our local surroundings indoors and out. We celebrate the natural world and delights of summer gardens. Pieces of medieval music take us to the era of the church’s exquisite wall paintings and modern settings bring to life characters and situations featured on the walls. Folk songs, jazzy numbers and atmospheric surround-sound music complete a varied evening.
The proceeds from this concert will go towards preserving the church’s extremely rare 12th century frescoes.
