A church’s youth choir is performing for free this weekend.
St Wulfram’s Youth Choir perform a free concert at St Wulfram’s Church on Saturday 9th July at 11.30am.
The recital was originally advertised for the following Saturday, but the date was moved to 9 July when St Wulfram’s Church Choir accepted an invitation to sing Choral Evensong at Westminster Abbey on 16 July.
The youth choir is between 13 and 17 years old and provides an ongoing opportunity for sacred choral music to members of the church’s younger boys’ and girls’ choirs as they reach their teens.
The teenagers sing in perfect harmony and their repertoire ranges from Renaissance music to contemporary choral music. They are especially looking forward to performing modern arrangements of the American folk anthem Shenandoah and Laura Mvula’s Sing to the Moon.
The recital begins at 11:30 a.m. and will last approximately 50 minutes. Admission is free and a retired collection will be taken to the Choristers’ next residence at Ely Cathedral.
During Ely Residency (August 1-7), the Youth Choir will contribute with the Young Choristers and Adult Singers to services at Ely Cathedral, but they will also have their own program of rehearsals, performances, recordings and filming, and they are particularly looking forward to a youth choir performance at Little St Mary’s Church, Cambridge as part of the week.
Dr Tim Williams, Director of Music at St Wulfram’s, said: “We are very proud of the level of the teenage members of our choir and the music they produce together.
“There is a fabulous atmosphere in the choir, which is the result of all these years of learning these young musicians together at St Wulfram’s – we are really looking forward to the concert on Saturday and sharing the wonderful sound of this ensemble with the people of Grantham.
“This concert really marks the start of what will be an incredible summer for the choir.”
The church cafe will be open from 10am, selling homemade cakes.
Find the choir on their YouTube channel and their Facebook page.
