A Midsummer's Light Music

Chantry Singers’ next concert is a festival of light choral music, featuring George Shearing’s endearing settings of Shakespeare texts in his "Songs and Sonnets" for Choir, Jazz Piano and Bass. In a first for the choir, we will also be singing four beautiful choral works in Swedish, based on music written by the legendary songwriter and erstwhile keyboardist with ABBA, Benny Andersson. Since a fairly brief foray into writing for the West End in the late 80’s, Andersson turned his attention back to his first love of Swedish folk music, writing modern songs but with a traditional Scandinavian heart. We will also be rounding off the programme with songs from “Chess” and "La La Land” as well as new arrangements by our conductor, Roy Rashbrook, of music by ABBA and the Electric Light Orchestra.

It promises to be a truly memorable evening on June 22nd at our usual venue, St Nicolas Church, Bury Street, Guildford! Please click the link below to book tickets, or phone 07969 906439
