Rivers have always inspired artists, poets and composers: enjoy City Chorus performing beautiful music on a riparian theme, ranging from classical works to showtunes, jazz standards to folksongs, spirituals to new compositions. Guest professional soloists join this London-based choir to sing favourites like Moon River, The Water of Tyne, The Volga Boat Song, and Cry me a River. The programme reaches back to Palestrina (Super flumina Babylonis) and Handel (De torrente in via) and forward to brand-new arrangements by conductor Paul Ayres. Accompanist Philip Shannon puts the icing on the cake with the dazzling solo Jeux d'eau by Maurice Ravel. Please join us for summer refreshments afterwards. City Chorus will also be performing at Edinburgh Festival Fringe on Saturday 19 August, 4.30pm St Andrew’s & St George’s West, Edinburgh, EH2 2PA.
