A programme of choral music to mark the summer solstice featuring members of the BBC Singers conducted by NHO’s Artistic Director, Nicholas Chalmers, with special guests Judith Weir and Petroc Trelawny.
This concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
The BBC Singers hold a unique place in British musical life, bringing an exceptional range of choral music to the widest audiences, with recent performances including music from Victoria, Tallis and Handel to Hillborg, Wallen and Weir. Members of the BBC Singers will sing a selection of music to mark the summer solstice based on the themes of Sun and Light. We are delighted to be joined by Master of the Queen’s Music, and past BBC Singers Composer in Association Judith Weir, who will be ‘in conversation’ with our host for the evening - BBC Radio 3’s Petroc Trelawny.
