Con­cert will be a clas­sic

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Tonight’s Tv -

CPSO 20th An­niver­sary Con­cert, Peter­bor­ough Cathe­dral, July 3 Singers (as well as singers who have re­sponded to the in­vi­ta­tion to take part given out in The Evening Tele­graph Guide) to take part in the rous­ing choral end­ing.

Mr Osborn, said: “Joined by four in­ter­na­tion­ally ex­pe­ri­enced solo singers, Rachel Ni­cholls, Su­sanna Tudor-Thomas, Richard Roberts and An­drew Slater and di­rected by our cel­e­brated prin­ci­pal con­duc­tor, Rus­sell Ke­able, this is sure to be an ex­cit­ing event.”

Re­hearsals are well un­der way and Mr Osborn said: “Three of the par­tic­i­pat­ing choirs are mem­bers of Peter­bor­ough Mu­sic Mak­ing, so it is pleas­ing to be able to mount this event as a show­case for the mu­si­cal tal­ent in Peter­bor­ough. This con­cert will be a wor­thy suc­ces­sor to our ear­lier ma­jor col­lab­o­ra­tion with Mahler’s Res­ur­rec­tion Sym­phony in 2008, which was an epoch mak­ing event that put Peter­bor­ough firmly on the clas­si­cal mu­sic map”.

Beethoven’s 9th is atow­er­ing sym­phony with dra­matic grandeur, im­mense vi­sion and sub­lime majesty and it is the crowning achieve­ment of the great­est com­poser of them all.

Ode to Joy, is a rous­ing choral fi­nale that is of­ten re­garded as the un­of­fi­cial Euro­pean Na­tional An­them. Cou­pled with the gritty fan­fare Ar­bos, by Arvo Pärt, and the evoca­tive seren­ity of Vaugh­anWil­liam’s Tal­lis Fan­ta­sia for string or­ches­tra, this brings to­gether up to 200 per­form­ers in what prom­ises to be the biggest sin­gle clas­si­cal mu­sic event of 2010.

Tick­ets are £12 (£10 con­ces­sions) and can be pur­chased from the Peter­bor­ough Des­ti­na­tion Cen­tre, 9 Bridge Street, tele­phone 01733 452336 and also on­line at www.cpso. org.uk.
