Nobody writes for choirs quite like Eric Whitacre: by turns haunting and playful, his music lingers long in the heart and soul. With his trademark scrunches, sexy harmonies, and fabulous sense of texture in sound, Eric has become a worldwide phenomenon in the choral world. Enjoy a wonderful long-weekend exploring his music with renowned choral maestro Gavin Carr, whose humour and passion is fast becoming legendary. From the awesome depth of When David heard to the stunning beauty of I thank you god for most this amazing day, and exploring some lesser-known works as well, this concert is the culmination of the Choral Experience Weekend.
Tickets will be available on the door but we recommend booking online in advance as events can sell out.
