Cavatina Singers Penarth
LATEST NEWS : May 2019
Cavatina Singers are preparing for their annual summer concert. Here's just some of the music we are singing:
Les Misérables Medley (Schönberg, arr. Ed Lojeski)
Notre Pere (Durufle)
Dirait on (Lauridsen)
Tantum ergo (Fauré)
Cantique de Jean racine (Fauré)
If you are interested in singing or thinking of joining a choir, why not join us on Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm at Penarth Tabernacle Church.
A friendly well established four-part SATB choir (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass) with up to 40 members singing in Penarth for 30+ years. Currently under the direction of a dynamic and supportive Musical Director, Alex Thacker, accompanied by the talented David Butler.
The choir performs a range of music both Classical and Contemporary and has recently completed a collaborative project through the 'Composer in Residence' scheme funded by Tŷ Cerdd: Ian Lawson, a local composer, wrote a little jazz mass 'Missa Brevis' for Cavatina Singers and Stanwell Comprehensive School Choir, which we performed together at its premier on November 20th 2018.
At Christmas we celebrate at a number of venues with carols from the 100 Carols for Choirs along with other contemporary seasonal music.
Throughout the year the choir perform themed Spring, Summer and Autumn concerts, with music drawn from a range of traditional and contemporary composers, as well as a few popular songs. In the Spring of 2019 we held a Come and Sing event, performing Handel's Coronation Anthems with the wonderful Adastri Ensemble and 35 visitors. Our Summer 'Cream Tea' concert is particular popular with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for all to enjoy.
Some musical experience would be an advantage, although it is not essential. As a member of the choir you will have access to support material and a welcoming group of people who just love singing.
