A Suffolk Choir of Excellence

Into The Light, Paul Carr 1000 Years World Premiere sadly cancelled

The world premiere of Paul Carr’s new work “Into the Light” with the English Arts Chorale and accompanied by Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra as part of the rescheduled St Edmundsbury Millennium Celebrations.

This is a new commission from Paul Carr celebrating 1,000 years since the founding of the Abbey of St Edmund (in Bury St Edmunds), called INTO THE LIGHT. Completed for 2020 , this new piece now has its World Première scheduled for Saturday 29th May 2021 in St Edmundsbury Cathedral Bury St Edmunds as part of the 2021 Bury Festival, when Eye Bach Choir, The English Arts Chorale, and the fabulous tenor James Gilchrist join Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of its conductor Leslie Olive. With the announcement of the first Covid19 vaccine, it begins to seem as though by 29th May 2021, the title “INTO THE LIGHT” might feel happily providential (Leslie Olive).

We rehearse each Friday during the school term from September until May at Eye Primary School next to the church between 7.45 pm. and 9.45 pm, with a sociable coffee in the middle, and refreshments at the pub afterwards. Singing on a Friday night sets us up for the weekend nicely.
