Every nook and cranny of the Minster Church of St Nicholas in Great Yarmouth will be filled with the glorious music of Mozart as Yarmouth Choral Society and Lowestoft-based Pakefield Singers unite to sing some of the composer’s most thrilling pieces.
The performance, which is part of Great Yarmouth Arts Festival, will be held in the Minster on Saturday, June 7, at 7.30pm.
The all-Mozart programme includes the iconic, and much loved, Requiem as well as the less frequently performed Regina Coeli and the cheerful Spatze-Messe or “Sparrow Mass”, as it is sometimes known.
John Stephens, the highly regarded organist at the Minster will accompany and also perform the Allegro and Andante in F, again by Mozart, which is a showpiece for the instrument with wonderfully contrasting moods.
The soloists for the evening, soprano, Laura Monaghan, mezzo-soprano Emilia Jewitt, tenor James Butler and baritone Michael Collins are all embarking on promising professional careers.
