The final concert of this year’s City Summer Sounds Music Festival took place on Friday 31st May at the local church of St Clement’s, King Square.
The concert began with the City University Chamber Orchestra performing the Overture to Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro (1786). The orchestra was then joined by the Music Department’s Chamber Choir for a performance of Haydn’s dramatic Missa in Tempore Belli (‘Mass in Time of War’) (1796).
Many thanks to Tim Hooper for his amazing work conducting both Chamber Choir and Chamber Orchestra this year.
The concert marked the end of this year’s festival and another busy year of music-making!
