Founded in 1974, Conductor: Leslie Olive

A Suffolk Choir of Excellence

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

Please note that this Concert has had to be postponed due to Coronavirus.

Sadly Eye Bach Choir have had to postpone this concert, the forthcoming concert at The Royal Academy in London and also the Tour to Prague. The Government of the Czech Republic have announced that there will be no cross border movements for the next 30 days, so the Prague Conservatoire orchestra who were due to accompany us in the concerts and of course in Prague too are no longer able to travel. We are very disappointed since this would have been quite an event for everyone. However we hope to consider a date in the future to come together again to perform Sea Symphony.

If you have already booked tickets for this Concert then you can either refer back to the booking agents who we hope will be able to help you with a refund at:

www.whatsonwestsuffolk.co.uk

Or please check back to this website in a month to see what progress we have made with an alternative date so that tickets can be transferred to the new date.

Our apologies, but we hope that a new arrangement can be made.

 

 

The original text for the Concert read as follows:

 

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.
