Event description

Description

The St Charles Singers, a professional American chamber choir of around 30 voices from Chicago, will be fiving a concert of some rarely heard American Music in St James’s Church, Piccadilly on Thursday 15th June at 7.30pm, notably Dominick Argento’s “Walden Pond” (1996), a virtuosic and evocative five movement work for mixed choir, three cellos and harp. The Chicago Tribune describes the choir as “a splendidly disciplined and beautifully responsive group … choral singing doesn’t get much better than this”. John Rutter, who has conducted them on a number of occasions when visiting the USA describes them as a choir of the highest calibre, sensitive, assured, and versatile. He goes on to say, “I have been privileged to direct Jeff Hunt’s choir on a number of fondly-remembered occasions. It is like being allowed to drive someone else’s finely-tuned Rolls Royce. They purr along effortlessly at high speed, negotiate the awkward corners with ease, make you feel like a better driver – and you don’t even have to fill them up with fuel!”

This is definitely a concert not to be missed.
