Look Out!

On Thursday 29th May members of Canterbury Cantata Trust along with many other singers , took part in the first performance and filming of Lookout! , five songs written by John Harle to words by Tom Pickard. The songs captured simply and effectively reflections on and concerns about living in Folkestone ( and elsewhere!) commissioned by The Creative Foundation as a work to be screened in this years Folkestone Triennial  ( starts August 29th) . A superb ensemble of keyboard, string bass, accordion and soprano saxophone accompanied the songs which were rehearsed over a five hour period prior to the filming. The Lees Cliff Hall Folkestone must rank as one of the worst venues in which to sing in the land! Acoustically dead, poor or non existent air conditioning, impossibly difficult disabled access to the performing stage area ...otherwise ideal! However, as always people not only managed but in the case of Skylarks overcame  and conquered the  difficulties encountered to ensure a wonderful performance of the songs. Members of Monday Music, Amici Singers, Cantata and Skylarks all took part and await with interest the premiere of the film on August 29 th. The music was directed by Grenville Hancox and is published by Chester Music.

Dear Amici Members,

 

I hope that you have enjoyed the past year with Amici. We have certainly covered a wide range of music and are building up an interesting repertoire. Our concerts were very well received and we should be very proud of our achievement.

 

We are about to order the music for next term and if you did not put your name down in the last two weeks please let me know ASAP if you require the scores. The Bach Magnificat (Novello edition) will cost approx. £4.50 and the Vivaldi Magnificat (Ricordi edition) approx £8.00.

 

By bulk ordering we get a discount and the music will be available at the first rehearsal - 17th September 2014, when we will be collecting payments along with subs for the next year.

 

If you are no longer able to continue singing with us, could I please ask you to let me know.

 

I look forward to seeing you all again in September and hope that you have an enjoyable summer.

 

Kind Regards,

Vicky Bradburn

Membership Secretary
