O, Clap Your Hands!
The Fourth Choir's Fifth Birthday Concert
Saturday 9 March 2019, The Musical Museum, Brentford TW8 0DU
6.30 Demonstration of Musical Instruments, with complimentary glass of prosecco
Join us for a diverse and joyful programme including songs of celebration as well as highlights from the Choir's first five years.
The first half will include O Clap Your Hands by Gibbons, Sing Joyfully by Byrd and Effortlessly Love Flows by Kernis. In the second half we will premiere a new commission called Song of Myself, by Stuart Beatch, the Choir's composer in residence.
We'll also feature songs from our previous commissions and competitions, our events that commemorated The Marriage (Same-Sex Couples) Act, 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, and our Essential Ella programme at the Jazz Cafe. A special highlight will be a choral arrangement with the glowing Mighty Wurlitzer organ, and an organ solo showing off the capabilities of this spectacular instrument.
Come at 6.30 and enjoy a glass of prosecco while watching the Museum’s unique collection of mechanical instruments being put through their paces. The sight and sound of one of the Museum’s antique instruments being played by unseen hands will put you in touch with your inner five-year-old in an instant!
£15 (£12 Concessions) online / £17.50 (£15 concessions) on the door
Featuring the Mighty Wurlitzer, the 1920s theatre organ at The Musical Museum.
