Fringe Venue 125
Saturday 15 August, 12:30pm
For our second visit to the Fringe, we will present an hour of Spanish song composed over the last 100 years, with recognisably luscious Spanish harmonies and infectious rhythms. If you came to our February concerts, you will already have enjoyed a few of these: the texts, some traditional, some by the poet Federico García Lorca, evoke sultry Iberian summer nights, the perfumes of orange and pomegranate, and the joys, pain and humour of love and life. To the music of Busto, Guridi, Manuel Oltra and Antonio José, we have added works by Bedmar and Abril.
If you are in the area we would be delighted to see you! The concert timing is perfect for you to enjoy a post-concert lunch and catch one or two other shows on the Festival or Fringe later in the day.
Tickets can be purchased on the door and cost £10 or £8 for concessions (free for under-18s). These can be reserved as usual via our website www.wordsworthsingers.org.uk or purchased on the door.
Formed in 1997 as a small choir with a repertoire ranging from Plainsong to Poulenc, Monteverdi to MacMillan, the Wordsworth Singers have won critical acclaim for inspiring performances of largely unaccompanied works.
The choir's singing members come from all over Cumbria and from the south of Scotland, coming together several times a year to perform concerts throughout Cumbria and beyond, following a two week rehearsal period with their Director of Music, Mark Hindley.
In addition to the season's concerts, the singers frequently perform at weddings and other events, and collaborate with other groups in larger scale works.
