Magical autumn concert comes to cathedral

All are welcome to come along to a fundraising concert in St Mary’s Cathedral on Saturday October 21, featuring magical performances of a wide variety of music. 
In celebration of the Strictly Come Dancing season, the Cathedral’s Junior Choir will sing the Harvest Tango and lead a performance of the African worship song, Amani Utupe.  
Head chorister emeritus Charlie Perkin, pictured nearest on the front row in our photograph, will make a welcome return to the cathedral, leading a performance of another African favourite Imela, and the cathedral’s senior choristers will sing the popular song True Colours. 
Soprano Susan Robertson will perform virtuosic soprano aria Der Holle Rache, the famous Queen of the Night aria from Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
Susan is the manager of Tees Valley Music Service and a well-known soprano soloist, vocal workshop leader, songwriter and conductor of choirs. A highlight for Susan in 2017 was singing Rule Britannia and God Save the Queen in the finale of the New Year’s Day Celebrations in London, which were televised round the world.
Professional cellist Chris Nolan will play Bach’s Prelude from Suite No 1 as well as Bloch’s Hebrew Prayer.  Chris studied cello and piano at the Royal Northern College of Music and has played with many ensembles.
For this event, she will form a string quartet with talented local players to perform Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Vivaldi’s Autumn.
Other music will include Laudate Dominum, Ave Verum Corpus, Der Vogelfanger, Bei Mannern, Any Dream Will Do, Over the Rainbow and Fields of Gold.
There will be a chance to socialise after the concert over a glass of wine or soft drink, which is included in the ticket price. Please come and enjoy an evening of music and fellowship. 
Tickets are £7 (accompanied children free) and are available from Christa at 01642 597750 or online from tinyurl.com/2p8fs55u.
