MUSIC FOR THE PLATINUM JUBILEE

Join us on 9th April at 7.30pm in the Dolphin Centre for Music fit for a Queen – an Entertainment

Inspired by the tradition of the 16th century courtly masques we’ve decided to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee (and our emergence – we hope - from two years of masks) with a selection of music drawn from the last four centuries, all connected with Queens.  You’ll hear plenty from Henry Purcell (Come ye Sons of Art and The Fairy Queen) laced with some Benjamin Britten, a little Gilbert and Sullivan, a glee from one of our regional composers, William Shield, a madrigal from The Triumphs of Oriana, all topped off with Handel’s Coronation Anthem My Heart is Inditing.  Something for everyone in fact, and accompanied by the excellent Mowbray Orchestra with a cast of professional soloists soon to be announced.
