With a reception at 6:30pm to celebrate the launch of the new Southwold Music Trust.
A welcome return for Suffolk-based vocal ensemble Seraphim and their conductor Vetta Wise on Saturday 5th December, 7:30pm, in Southwold’s St Edmund’s Church.
Seraphim have followed recent sell-out performances in East Anglia with rapturously received concerts in London and Venice earlier this year and we are delighted to welcome them back to Southwold after their stunning concert here last Christmas. They will be joined by distinguished instrumentalists Anna Noakes (flute) and Gabriella Dell'Olio (harp), both faculty members at Trinity College of Music in London. The concert is titled ‘Deo Gracias!’, featuring Christmas music from a wide variety of traditions. Alongside Britten’s Ceremony of Carols will be works by Bach, carols from the Renaissance and 20th century, arrangements of African folksong, and much more.
The concert is preceded by a receptio to mark the launch of the new Southwold Music Trust, which is supporting the concert. The trust is one of the Southwold Town Mayor's nominated charities for the current year. All concert-goers are welcome to join the reception, which will take place at 6:30pm in St Edmund's Hall on Cumberland Road. The concert itself will then begin at 7:30pm in St Edmund's Church, (only a two minute walk away) and will last just over an hour, with no interval.
