The next concert of sublime upper-voice music to be given by the popular female vocal ensemble Seraphim on Sunday 4th December promises a fascinating blend of the traditional and the new. Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the death on this day of Suffolk’s own Benjamin Britten the nine talented singers, conducted by Vetta Wise, will perform his Ceremony of Carols with its haunting setting of ancient words for upper voices.
Vetta says, “Seraphim enjoys showcasing the music of modern, particularly living, composers, and the group has been preparing for the honour and challenge of giving a “first performance”- an evocative setting of In the Bleak Midwinter written for them by Suffolk’s Jonathan Rutherford, who will not only be present, but also be playing the magnificent Orwell Park Orangery piano. We are really excited about this.”
Singing carols old and new, the Seraphs welcome you and your friends to celebrate the Christmas season with their warming and delicious mix of Christmas music old and new, mulled wine and seasonal refreshments!
Returning to their Suffolk roots after their successful concert in Wymondham Abbey and tour to Jersey, the singers will be performing at 4pm in the Orangery at Orwell Park School, a truly fitting place for their aspiration of “beautiful sounds in beautiful spaces”. Advance booking is recommended as Seraphim’s concerts attract capacity audiences.
