Inter-church choirs in Ipswich,
Bury St Edmunds and Colchester
Saturday 2 May 2020 at the Royal Albert Hall
Prom Praise is an exciting mixture of the flavours of Songs of Praise and the Last Night of the Proms. Directed by Michael Andrews, the 100-strong All Souls Orchestra present a stunning program of music old and new, joined by the 500-voice massed choir.
Cantus Firmus Choir is invited to form part of the massed choir. Join us for a memorable day singing in one of the world's most famous concert halls.
Singers who have not sung in a Cantus Firmus choir will be asked to stay after the first rehearsal for a quick voice test before committing to the event.
There is a requested donation of £20 per singer to cover rehearsal and music costs. We will invite a Gift Aid declaration from those who can give this way, but for those who cannot or do not wish to, a donation in cash would allow us to claim an extra 25% under the SDS scheme.
The cost for a seat in the choir at the Royal Albert Hall is £15 per singer, payable at a later rehearsal.
Getting to London
We plan to provide coaches from Ipswich and Colchester, and from Bury if demand is sufficient. Seats will also be available for family and friends who wish to join the audience. Tickets for the performance will be available from the Royal Albert Hall box office nearer the time, and we usually get a discount code).
The cost of coach travel will be determined once we know choir numbers.
Rehearsals will be held in Ipswich, Colchester and Bury St Edmunds. SIngers should attend seven rehearsals where possible, but not fewer than five, including at least two joint rehearsals.
For those who have not sung with Cantus Firmus before there will be a short informal audtiion after the first rehearsal.
