Sales Have Ended
On 24th September 2016 John Rutter will be joining us in York for a day of music-making, fun & a bit of excitement. In his own words, the day will include
“a variety of choral music old and new, with some recent publications, some old favourites, and a few surprises.”
We will be in the welcoming environment of Central Methodist Church, York, to enjoy an experience that previous participants have described as
"we had all the fun and joy we were meant to have"
John is well-known for his passionate commitment to bringing music to everyone and sharing his enthusiasm through workshops and singing days. Described as “the world’s greatest living composer and conductor of choral music” by NBC’s Today Show, Rutter’s music has delighted audiences around the world.
“John Rutter worked tirelessly and with infectious enthusiasm through the day to inspire the singers”
We do not know exactly what we’ll be singing, yet, but we promise it’ll be a mixture of fun, laughter, music-making and learning. We’ll even throw in a performance at the end, just to round off the day.
“the building had never resonated before with such a sound”
