The bright young ensemble known as Genesis Sixteen presents a programme of sacred and secular choral works ranging from early Renaissance polyphony to 21st-century song. The afternoon’s concert will also include three world premieres of works by young emerging composers Philip Cooke, Marco Galvani and Joseph Phibbs.
Now entering its seventh year, Genesis Sixteen remains a pioneering training scheme for the next generation of young ensemble singers. In addition to high quality vocal training from conductor Harry Christophers, associate conductor Eamonn Dougan and members of The Sixteen, participants also receive specialist training in vocal health and business skills.
The concert at 1.15pm is presented as part of an artist residency supported by the F W Reckitt Arts Trust. You are welcome to join us for tea after the concert.
Entry is by donation to the Hawkwood Eileen Nesfield-Cookson Bursary Fund
“Genesis Sixteen has become an integral part of what The Sixteen does and the quality of young singers remains incredibly high. We want to recruit from the widest possible geographical and social backgrounds to help secure a vibrant future for choral singing in this country. We are, as always, indebted to The Genesis Foundation for its dedication to this cause.” Harry Christophers CBE
