Guernsey Choral Fest: Tenebrae Consort: Sun, Moon, Sea and Stars

6th Oct

On Thursday 6th October, 19:30, St James, the festival will be headlined by The Tenebrae Consort performing their highly-acclaimed programme, Sun, Moon, Sea and Stars.

Featuring arrangements and original songs by Bob Chilcott and other contemporary British composers. There will be an eclectic mix of styles from Samba to traditional Japanese melodies, Gershwin to the Beatles, and everything in between. This is expected to sell out so make sure you snap up a ticket quickly!

Nigel Short directs singers from one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles in a concert of choral arrangements by Bob Chilcott and other British composers. Described as “phenomenal” by The Times, and “devastatingly beautiful” by Gramophone, this is a group renowned for its passion and precision.

Tenebrae performs to sell-out audiences on stages across the world, so make sure you grab this opportunity to see them live in Guernsey. This is a light-hearted programme that will suit all ages and interests.
