An imaginative and original alternative to the Eurovision Song Contest

The Sterndale Singers have come up with an imaginative and original alternative to the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday 21st May. They have selected music from 18 of the Countries which compete in Eurovision and will present their own version of the competition. The programme, which as you will imagine is a real smorgasbord of musical delights – as varied a programme as you could wish to imagine – includes genres as varied as Renaissance polyphony from Italy and Spain, Folk Songs from all sorts of obscure places, exciting arrangements of texts by Shakespeare by a variety of composers, and to use a slightly hackneyed phrase, in this plethora of musical styles, there really should be something for everyone. In addition there is the added excitement of watching and listening to the choir get to grips with at least nine different languages – a challenge they are relishing. “Why not eighteen different languages?” we hear you cry. “that would really be fun!”. Fortunately many of our European composers write in English or Latin.

As well as supping on wine or soft drinks, whilst listening to the music, audience members will be given the chance to vote for their favourite numbers during the evening – so if you have always wanted to shout “nul points” this will be your chance.

Further information is available from the choir’s website and on their facebook page and tickets can be ordered in advance through these.
