For the first time in Petros Singers’ 41 years, the choir presents a concert exclusively featuring works by female composers, including madrigals from Ghirlanda by Vittoria Aleotti, songs from Fanny Mendelssohn’s Gartenlieder and Drei Gemischte Chöre by Clara Schumann, as well as music from Amy Beach, Rebecca Clarke and Judith Weir.

We’re delighted to welcome back pianist Libby Burgess, who will complete the programme with solo piano music by Cheryl Frances-Hoad and Lili Boulanger.

With music from Italy, France, Germany, Russia, the UK and USA, the concert will explore unique sound-worlds and fresh musical textures.

Libby Burgess is well known on concert stages across Britain, playing in the country’s major halls and festivals, on Radio 3, and on numerous recordings. She is known for her ‘warm, sensitive pianism’ (The Observer), her musical intelligence and her generosity of collaborative spirit. Libby is also the founding Artistic Director of the annual New Paths Music Festival in Yorkshire, the creative highlight of her year.

NB our new start time of 7pm.
