Concert and reception: How the light gets in

Pembroke Auditorium, Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1RF

Sunday, 22 October 2023 – 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Join the Singers for this early evening concert featuring traditional, classical and contemporary pieces artfully blended into a seamless whole. The concert title is taken from Leonard Cohen’s Anthem, around which the programme has been assembled.

With Ivan Garford (piano), Guilio Lampronti (double bass) & Derek Scurll (percussion)

“There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in….”

The centrepiece of this concert will be a powerful performance of Leonard Cohen’s transcendentally uplifting Anthem, the song he wrote to bring hope to the world in troubled times.

The programme will also include songs made popular by Sinatra and Holiday, works by Vaughan Williams and Purcell, and powerful traditional pieces.

The concert takes place in the Pembroke Auditorium, Cambridge’s newly refurbished performance space, formerly the EURC Church in Trumpington Street, opposite Pembroke College.

We hope you will join the choir for drinks at a reception to be held after the concert.

Tickets: £18 (adult), £9 student/child, plus booking fee
