On Sunday 17th December, Chamber Choir performed in a concert at the Sage Gateshead alongside the Sage’s own youth choir, Quay Voices. As well as soloists from The Sage, pupils Elizabeth Bircham and Tia Radix-Callixte performed, our own choir sang ‘O Nata Lux’ and ‘The Lily and the Rose’, and the concert culminated with a spectacular performance of Jonathan Dove’s ‘The Passing of the Year’. This was a tremendously challenging but rewarding work to perform, written for double choir and piano, and Chamber Choir should be immensely proud of themselves for working hard to put the piece together with Quay Voices in one afternoon rehearsal to be performed that evening.
Chamber Choir are also performing at Durham Cathedral in February, and The Sage Gateshead again in March. Watch this space for further details.
