Come & Sing: Britten - St Nicolas Cantata

Come & Sing: Britten - St Nicolas Cantata

Following the success of last year's Come and Sing: Evensong, we invite you to buy a ticket and come along to our performance of Benjamin Britten's St Nicolas Cantata on Sunday 9th December.

If you'd like to take part and join the choir for a day, sign up for our Workshop and let conductor, Matthew Morley, guide you through learning the music and the evening performance.

Call 020 7427 0133 or email and we can help.

With the help of Pickled Boys, sailors, orchestral whips, a girls chorus in the gallery, tenor soloist, chorus and orchestra, Britten takes us through the life and miracles of the patron saint of sailors and children (and the origin of today's Santa Claus). Written with music of great colour and accessibility, it typifies Britten's genius for composing music for the whole community; even the audience get the chance to sing, so there's something for everyone!

Previous experience of singing in a choir will be an advantage but not a prerequisite! You'll be standing alongside the professional singers in our choir so it's a rare opportunity to brush shoulders with some of the best ensemble singers in the UK.

Vocal Scores will be provided.

If you would like more information please e-mail

If you don't fancy singing but would like to listen, the workshop will culminate in a concert performance at 6:30pm, advance ticket price £10 (£15 on the door).
