An evening of music with an American theme

To round off the Bach Choir's 69th season, the choir is excited to be singing some new arrangements of American classic songs including ‘Let's call the whole thing off’, and ‘They all laughed at Christopher Columbus’ being specially orchestrated for this concert by the choir's distinguished President, George Nicholson, Professor of Composition at Sheffield University.

Staying in light mood and in the US, the concert will feature Dr Donald Hunt's beautifully scored and deftly etched American Serenade which is a celebration of the art of George Gershwin, Jerome Kern and Cole Porter – with individual numbers for smash hit shows such as High Society, Porgy and Bess and Show Boat.

Also on the programme is John Rutter’s Feel the Spirit, an infectious suite of spirituals including an exquisite setting of Deep River. So whether you are a lover of American classic musicals, or just enjoy infectious music joyously sung, come along for an evening of great choral music in the beautiful setting of St Mark's Church.
