West Cumberland Choral Society are set to perform Adiemus in the magical setting of St Bees Priory.
The choir will showcase Adiemus -Songs of Sanctuary by Karl Jenkins, under the baton of new MD Kaytie Harding.
Drawing on classical, world and Celtic music, this powerful work explores vibrant tribal-like rhythms and vocals, accompanied by keyboard, percussion and woodwind.
Contemporary American composer Eric Whitacre creates a gorgeous spectrum of ethereal sound with Lux Aurumque, and fellow American Elaine Hagenberg brings poignant musical narratives with Song of Miriam and You Do Not Walk Alone. Ola Gjeilo’s Northern Lights delivers a delicate jewel to choral singing, while Fly Me To The Moon and Bring Me Sunshine evoke warmth and fun!
The concert starts at 7.30pm on Saturday April 1 in St Bees Priory with refreshments served after the concert.
Tickets are £10, available at the door (Students £5, under-18s free).
