Songs for a Summer Evening

  • The Unitarian Chapel The Unitarian Chapel, St Saviourgate, York (map)

South Bank Singers will be presenting a light hearted programme of Songs for a Summer Evening at 7.30 on Saturday July 11 - The Unitarian Chapel, St Saviourgate, York

They are inviting you to come and join them in a wallow of summer themed choral music, mostly comfortingly familiar but with some surprises and some humour. The music will range from Victorian parlours songs to madrigals and will include the ever popular The Goslings, traditional song from the Auvergne, Le Baylere, as well as the contemporary, The Hills by John Ireland

Spokesperson John Guest, Chairman of the group said

“South Bank Singers philosophy maintains that both music and giving are therapeutic and so aim to combine these in their concerts by giving most of their profits to charities. We aim to spread this across a wide variety of charities but are always particularly pleased when the charity also has some connection to music, as does Jessie’s Fund, our chosen charity for this event.”

Jessie’s Fund was founded in 1995, and is a UK charity helping children with additional and complex needs to communicate and express themselves through the use of music. The charity works with children in hospices, special schools and in other settings nationwide, giving them access to music-making and to music therapy.
