Marking the centenary of the enfranchisement of millions of women, Suffolk’s highly acclaimed, all-female vocal group, Seraphim, will sing out in their honour.
A concert featuring a specially devised programme of words and music by, about and for, women past and present will be held at St Peter’s Church, Westleton at 5pm on Sunday, March 18.
Seraphim’s director, Vetta Wise, hand-picked the works to be performed from eminent composers throughout the world. She said: “It is a gift that we have the opportunity to share the wonderful works composed or arranged by women, from medieval nuns to modern day independent voices, and it is an honour to give them the due acknowledgement and presence they deserve.”
The Seraphim concert will include works by Fanny Mendelssohn, Lili Boulanger, Emily Bronte and composers like Carlotta Ferrari and more. As well as the unique a cappella sound of Seraphim’s nine voices, the celebration will include accompaniment and solo performances by renowned local pianist, Karen Smith. Tickets, costing £13.50 which includes post-concert refreshments, are available from Westleton Stores or 07763 527 239.
