Improvised Oratorio in London!
« on: April 21, 2017, 07:10:56 AM »
Members of Epiphany and the Musicians' Network are delighted to invite you to an extraordinary World Première on Friday 28th April at 7.30pm.

We will be performing a fully improvised Oratorio entitled 'The River' at St Sepulchre’s Church, Holborn Viaduct London, EC1A 2DQ, featuring Soprano April Fredrick, Countertenor Péter Bozi and a 20 piece orchestra.

Using many traditional oratorio texts but no written music, this exciting musical experiment is a feat that has never been attempted before!

This will be totally immersive experience with the musicians moving around the performance space throughout the concert.

Many of the musicians perform regularly with professional orchestras and ensembles around the UK and Europe, including the Hallé, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, English Chamber Orchestra amongst many others.

April Fredrick (soprano) has recently premièred as soloist in Joubert’s ‘Jane Eyre’ to critical acclaim both for her performance and for the recently released recording of the work.

Entry is free!

I'm not in London, or Europe, for that matter, but I am intrigued. :-)

Tnks.  My personal preferences have me hoping it is neither jazz or pop based, but whatever it is, I will check it out.
