- Other Information:Join Leith Hill Timeline Choir and the amazing Juice Vocal Ensemble (‘an all-female vocal trio of astonishing variety, spark and brilliance’ – The Observer) for a Shakespearean celebration of song on Saturday 26th November. In honour of the 400th anniversary of the playwright’s death, which took place this year, the group draw inspiration not only from Renaissance choral music, but also from the sounds of theatres and taverns, songs of the street and cries of market traders, to re-imagine the atmosphere of a performance at the Globe theatre, in which people from all walks of life came together to be captivated by drama.You will be able to close your eyes and find yourself transported back to Elizabethan England, as the choir perform music from the period in Original Pronunciation, – Shakespeare’s own dialect! Alongside music from Shakespeare’s time, Juice and Timeline Choir will perform works by some of Britain’s most exciting choral composers, including a commission by the British composer Kerry Andrew, known for her “brilliant Berio-like vocal effects” (The Times) and unique, genre-defying style.Before the concert, local music and drama enthusiasts are invited to a Shakespearean singing workshop with Stef Conner, featuring Elizabethan popular songs and catched from Shakespeare’s plays in Original Pronunciation. The workshop runs from 5:30–6:30pm on the concert day and is open to all, with no singing experience or score reading required.
The performance runs from 7:30pm – 9:30pm at St. Martin’s Church, Church St., Dorking; drinks will be served in the interval. Concert tickets (£12) and workshop tickets (£20) are available online at www.timelinesongs.org or by phone: 07843 666874.
