Pacifica Singers: Shakespeare & Co.

November 17, 2017 @ 8:00 pm


What was the music that Shakespeare may have heard in his own time?

Pacifica Singers bring you a potpourri of madrigals and songs from the turn of the 17th century, plus the bard’s own writings that have been set to music by 20th-century composers. Vaughan Williams, Rutter, and even the jazz pianist, George Shearing, all set famous passages from Shakespeare’s plays.

Join Pacifica Singers and their new director, Fiona Blackburn, for an evening of eclectic choral works – old and new.
