Sixty voices of wonderful music
A most marvellous opportunity to hear this fine choir of young voices who perform entirely from memory. This is their first UK tour, and we are honoured that they will be performing here, given that they’ve just sung at Buckingham Palace for The Queen, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and David Beckham.
The programme will include Verdi Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves, Puccini Nessun Dorma, Zschech Worthy is the Lamb and Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus.
The concert will be performed in the presence of H.E. Sir Rodney Williams, Governor General of Antigua and Barbuda, and Lady Williams, and H.E. the High Commissioner Ms Karen-Mae Hill.
The concert starts at 5.30pm. You are most welcome to join everyone at a Caribbean supper and cash bar afterwards, hosted by Yvonne and her friends from the congregation of St Matthias Church.
