Come to a stunning concert of music and projected imagery with Amanda Dean and the St Augustine's Chamber Choir.

It will feature the Berio Sequenza III for female voice, a real showpiece that requires acting as well as singing abilities. It also features Wright and and Van't Hoog's Zip 1, Zip 2 and Zip 3, a series a short video observations of daily phenomena. This will provide visual interpretation for a musical work for the choir.

Finally, there will be the first performance of Richard Hoadley's Unthinking Things, for choir, electronics and projections of dynamic notations, based around concepts investigated by Bishop George Berkeley in 'A Treatise Concerning he Principles of Human Knowledge' written in 1710.

A one-of-a-kind concert that is not to be missed.

Saturday 17 March, 6pm

Our final concert of the year was 'Christmas Bells' at the Michaelhouse in Cambridge on 19th December.

The church was full to bursting - we even had to turn people away - and the feedback was excellent:

"Lovely concert."

"Helped me prepare for thinking about Christmas."

The choir's final appearance of 2015 will be at the Midnight Service on Christmas Eve at 11.30pm at St Augustine's Church, Richmond Road, Cambridge. We'll be singing Philip Mead's Christmas Bells and Charles Ives' beautiful carol, Little Star of Bethlehem.
