The choir and orchestra of St Wulfram’s Church will perform a concert of settings of the Magnificat concluding with Bach’s Magnificat in D on Sunday, July 14.

The choir and orchestra will be joined by soloists Avalon Summerfield, Tuffany Davis, Samuel Bardsley, Michael Davis, and Jake Muffett. The concert will be conducted by Dr Tim Williams, director of music at St Wulfram’s.

Tickets cost £10/£7 and are available from St Wulfram’s Parish Office and Simmonds Music on Westgate.

Strawberries and sparkling wine will be served during the interval. The concert starts at 5pm.

Dr Williams said the concert would prove challenging for the singers and musicians as it was a complicated piece. There will be about 50 singers and 20 musicians in the concert.

Dr Williams added: “This will be a celebration of the choir’s year. It has been a very interesting and exciting year for the choir.”

The choir has sung in Salisbury Cathedral and York Minster this year and they have been invited to sing in St Paul’s Cathedral in September.

Dr Williams also invited people along to Evensong at St Wulfram’s which is held twice a month on Sundays at 6.30pm. He said: “You can just sit, soak up the atmosphere and listen to the choir. It is an opportunity for the choir to sing serious Evensong choral music.”

Evensong and other church services are advertised in the Journal every week.
