Sunday 10 May Espérance
From James I to Charles II: music for Kings, Cavaliers and Commoners. Espérance, a group comprising local musicians Clare Devine, Stewart McCoy and Wendy Hancock, lead us in an evening of musical exploration. The programme will include English songs, solos for recorder and lute, and for solo lute. A stimulating evening guaranteed!
Sunday 14 June James Rippingale Classical Guitar
Classical Guitarist James Rippingale is well known for his eclectic programmes and sensitive musical playing. He graduated from Leeds College of Music with First Class Honours and the College Guitar Prize and has gone on to become a sought-after recitalist, concerto soloist and educator. The programme will include pieces by J.S. Bach, Barrios and Albéniz as well as some of James' own compositions.
Sunday 12 July Sarah Simmonds soprano
Sarah started out as a lead singer in a pop band and has since gone on to become a diverse performer in a whole range of styles. She joins forces with acclaimed pianist Antony Clare for this recital in which they'll present a varied and entertaining programme with the best of art song with a twist or two!
Sunday 13 September The Cecilian Singers
The Cecilian Singers, a chamber choir based in Leicester, celebrate their first visit to Southwell with a programme that demonstrates their great versatility. Renaissance church music rubs shoulders with folk-songs; 16th century part-songs meet their 19th century counterparts; William Byrd shakes hands with Irving Berlin. Along the way a monk and his cat compare notes... An evening not to be missed!
Sunday 11 October Southwell Minster School musicians
'Music in the Great Hall' was originally founded as a showcase opportunity for the young people of Southwell, and in the spirit of such a platform, we present to you an evening of music from students at Southwell Minster School. Do come and support the stars of tomorrow!
Sunday 8 November Philip Robinson & Mark Hacking
The series comes to an exquisite end with local musicians Philip Robinson (harpsichord) and Mark Hacking (bass viol) playing music by Handel and C.P.E. Bach, and pieces from 18th century France.
