Founded in 1974, Conductor: Leslie Olive

A Suffolk Choir of Excellence

UK Concert Prior To The Prague Tour 2020 – Vaughan Williams, Sea Symphony and Antonin Dvorak, Te Deum

An exciting introduction to the forthcoming Sea Symphony Tour to Prague 2020!


Hear the combined forces of Eye Bach Choir, the English Arts Chorale, and the Symphony Orchestra of the Prague Conservatoire.

In the wonderful setting of St Edmundsbury Cathedral, the choir, soloists and orchestra will perform Ralph Vaughan Williams’ iconic piece dedicated to the sea, A Sea Symphony, with soprano Julie Roberts, and baritone Philip Smith. This moving piece is so evocative of the sea in all its glory and also its turmoil. Melodies and drama run throughout the piece which will be all the better for the large scale of this work with the combined choirs and large orchestra.

And if that is not reason enough to be in the audience, the programme will also feature two of the Czech Republic’s best loved pieces, Antonin Dvorak, Te Deum for choir, soloists and orchestra, and the much loved orchestral piece by Smetana, Vlatva.

Choir, soloists and orchestra are conducted by Leslie Olive and Miriam Nemcova.


Tickets will be coordinated by The Apex in Bury St Edmunds and will be on sale at:

and not via the Choir this time.
