The City University Chamber Choir gave its Spring Term concert at St Clement’s Church on Wednesday 29th March, conducted by Tim Hooper, featuring a wonderful selection of pieces, including the sublime ‘Locus Iste’ by Bruckner, a full performance of the Vivaldi Gloria and the word premiere of acappella vocal piece ‘Sleep’ by first year BMus student Jacob Collins. For the Vivaldi, the choir was accompanied by a small chamber orchestra featuring BMus students Anna Vaughan (violin), Daisy Heath (‘cello), Stamatios Solonos (oboe), Jacob Collins (Harpsichord) and MA student Carlota Rodriguez Ruiz-Healy (viola). Vocal solos featured Emilie Parry Williams, Nia Rees and Carolina Herrera. A very enjoyable concert and the harpsichord also enjoyed its first outing of the year!
Tim Hooper will be conducting the Chamber Orchestra in a concert on May 19th as part of the City Summer Sounds Festival
