After another very successful season, we have now broken up for the summer hols. If you’d like to join the choir next season get in touch.
Women & Men with Coro Nostro Chamber Choir
Clarendon Park Congregational Church
Friday 13th June 7.30 pm
It’s the time for our summer concert and this year we’re heading to Clarendon Park Congregational Church who gave us such a warm welcome at Christmas.
The concert features an upbeat mix of songs about men and women and their relationships from a staggering range of time periods. We will be joined by super talented local young violinist Libby Sherwood.
This for the measly sum of £8 (or £6) and you get a glass of very quaffable wine thrown in.
We are performing as part of ArtBeat, the first Clarendon Park Community Arts Festival, which is being held from 5th-15th June 2014, to complement the already established Art House weekend where local artists display their work in their homes. The festival will include music, dance, performing arts, literature and poetry and more. This will be a showcase for local talent and we are expecting Clarendon Park residents and visitors to enjoy performances by established and new local artists.They will also be able to take part in workshops and have a go at new activities.
For more info about what’s going on in this exciting new festival and for details about how to join in, visit their website: www.clarendonpark.net
Music for a May Night with Coro Nostro Chamber Choir
Friday 2nd May 7.30pm
Bishop St Methodist Church, Town Hall Square, Leicester, LE1 6AF
Our Spring concert this year hopes to fit for a May queen. We’ve joined the usual silly May fayre with some beautiful, fun and interesting works by, for or about women. With some excellent and often overlooked music by Fanny Hensel (Mendelssohn’s arguably more talented sister), along with some beautiful Marian hymns by men and women from a range of eras. With a load of lovely Dowland songs about Queen Elizabeth I plus lots more.
All of this in the sublime acoustic space that is Bishop Street Methodist Church for the measly sum of £8 (or £6 if you’re lucky) and that’ll get you a (soft) drink and maybe a cake too depending on how organised we are.
What are you waiting for? Well the 2nd of May of course…
Happy new year all! Coro rehearsals will start again soon. If you’re a tenor and interested in joining us drop us a line. Anybody else - we’re a bit full up at the mo but get in touch to be put on our super exclusive Coro waiting list.
Thanks to all who turned out for our Christmas concert and made it a resounding success. No more Coro rehearsals this year.
Merry Christmas and a big thank you to everybody who has supported us this year. Here’s to 2014!
Music for Christmas 2013 with Coro Nostro Chamber Choir
This year our Christmas concert will be at Clarendon Park Congregational Church (on the corner of London Rd & Springfield Rd).
It may be a different venue but you’ll still get your usual delicious Coro blend of beautiful Latin motets, traditional carols and music from all over Europe.
Friday 13th December 7.30pm
Just £8 (or £6 concession) gets you an evening of fun and beautiful music AND a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie!
Join us for what many of our audience consider to be a highlight of Leicester’s Christmas concert season.
Coro Nostro perform “Il est Bel et Bon” by Pierre Passereau (1509-1547) at the East Bond Street Great Meeting Unitarian Chapel, Leicester 26th October 2013
