Sound of Wells Weekend
Thursday 7th to Sunday 10th October 2021
Between Thursday 7 October and Sunday 10 October there will be various concerts and services which form part of the Sound of Wells Weekend. There will be lunchtime concerts on Thursday and Friday, and an orchestral Eucharist on the Sunday morning.
The central point of the weekend will be a Sound of Wells Concert on Saturday 9 October at 7.00 p.m., when Wells Cathedral Choir will perform in concert with the English Chamber Orchestra and soprano Natalie Clifton-Griffith. The programme includes many favourites of the choral repertoire, including Mozart’s Laudate Dominum, Goodall’s The Lord is my shepherd, and Faurés Cantique de Jean Racine, as well as a fabulous work for strings, choir, and soprano by Patrick Hawes called Song of Songs. The orchestra will delight us with J.S. Bach’s Violin Concerto in A minor (played by violinist Stephanie Gonley) and Elgar’s Serenade for Strings.
This concert will be a wonderful celebration of the return of concerts at the Cathedral, given by our very own choir. Please do come and support what will be a tremendous concert – visit wellscathedral.org.uk/events to book your tickets now!
