Cantamus choir 2017 600CF

Inspirational choir concert comes to Itteringham

“Conflict and Collaboration”, the successful concert performed by Cantamus choir in Thorpe Market church last month, will be repeated in Itteringham later this month.

 
Cantamus choir, under the inspirational musical direction of Philip Adams, gave a marvellous concert at Thorpe Market Church on May 19.  Celebrating female composers, in this centennial year of the female vote, the choir sang rarely heard pieces, including the beautiful mass by Isabella Leonarda and the battle cries of the suffragettes. The rallying songs of composers such as Dame Ethel Smyth, who taught Emmeline Pankhurst how to hurl missiles more effectively, have almost been forgotten. Yet this sometimes rousing, sometimes reflective music has a hugely important place in our social history.
 
Cantamus will be repeating their applauded concert at 7pm on Thursday June 15 in Itteringham Village Hall, NR11 7AX, in support of the Itteringham Village Shop appeal. Philip Adams and the choir will be accompanied by renowned composer and pianist Michael Finissy, adding magic to works by Fauré and Messager, - this unique concert is not to be missed. Admission will be by donations and a fundraising raffle will be held. Refreshments will also be available.
 
New members are positively welcome to join the choir from September 7. The choir rehearses at Thorpe Market Church on Thursday evenings from 7.30pm for 2 hours, meeting only in the Autumn and Spring terms. They are particularly interested attracting more men to join. If you are interested in choral music then do contact the Secretary for further information on 01263 833 847 or by email: cantamussingers@gmail.com.
