Neil Ferris Conductor
Rachmaninov All-Night Vigil (Vespers), Op. 37

Written in 1915, a few years before the Revolution, Rachmaninov’s rich, sensual and intense work draws on the liturgy of the Orthodox Church and creates a choral masterpiece. The depth and intensity of vocal sonorities and passionate nature of the music brings the feel of a meditative ritual to any performance.

Sonoro is one of the UK’s newest choral groups and has instantly won acclaim for its exquisitely balanced sound and passionate singing.

Sonoro will also perform in Event 13 - Rossini's Petite Messe Solenelle with the Festival Chorus

Tickets £25, £20, £11 / Concessions £19, £15, £8

A rich, robust texture, abundant in vibrant colour and undoubted excitement.
