Iceni Choir Spring Concert : Tickets £10

April 21 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 pm

Mid-Norfolk based Iceni Choir’s Spring concert will commemorate the hundred year anniversary of the end of World War 1 at a gala concert to be held in Reepham on the evening of Saturday 21st April.

With a selection of ‘trench songs’ from the time and choral music by Rutter, Holst, Novello and Kern, interspersed with readings and poems from witnesses of the ‘Great War’, the programme traces the stages of that war from its optimistic beginning to its triumphant, yet tragic conclusion.

According to Musical Director James Lilwall, “This will be a very special evening to commemorate the anniversary of the hundred years since the end of World War 1. Though our programme reflects the reality and suffering of war, it also concludes on an optimistic note celebrating the peace that we largely enjoy today. Since on that day the Nation will also celebrate the 92nd birthday of Her Majesty, The Queen we shall also mark her service by concluding with Britten’s four part arrangement of The National Anthem.
