Britten: Spring Symphony – Canterbury Choral Society

Saturday 22 June, 7.30pm

Canterbury Cathedral

Tickets £10 – £33 (Incl. £2 booking fee)

This event is organised, managed and delivered by Canterbury Choral Society

Come and celebrate as Richard Cooke marks his 40th anniversary as Music Director of Canterbury Choral Society, with the CCS Youth Choir and an ambitious programme of rarely-performed but outstanding works from the 20th century.

They'll be joined by the London Mozart Players and a team of fine soloists in a programme of music in which to revel and dream on a June evening; full of passion, depth and humour. ‘Sumer is icumen in’ yell the augmented children’s choir at the end of Britten’s great Spring Symphony. Copland’s hauntingly evocative Appalachian Spring is preceded by Gustav Holst’s The Hymn of Jesus, perhaps his greatest work alongside The Planets.
