The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge and Director of Music Stephen Cleobury perform at three European festivals this summer.
They will first travel to Croatia for the Dubrovnik Summer Music Festival, to perform two concerts (19 and 20 August). The first features music by Tallis, Byrd and Walton, while for the second, Cleobury and the Choir will be joined by the Croatian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra and four Croatian soloists to perform Mozart Requiem and excerpts from Handel Messiah.
The subsequent two festivals are in France: a return to Festival de Musique Sacrée in Saint-Malo (22 August) and Festival Callient, in the Alsace region (25 August). In Saint-Malo, the choir performs a mixed programme with organ, including works by Palestrina, S.S. Wesley and Tallis. At Festival Callinet, the repertoire is Fauré Requiem and works by Howells and Stanford.
Following this tour, the Choir and Stephen Cleobury have a busy 2012/13 season ahead, including performances at the Rotterdam Gergiev Festival, Gent Festival and tours to the USA and Asia.
