To Be Sung On The Water

St Thomas Church, Winchelsea
7:30 pm, Saturday, 7 July, 2018


We are delighted to return to Winchelsea, a town that has been shaped by the tides, for a concert inspired by the world’s seas, lakes and rivers. Our musical journey encompasses Scotland’s lochs, Poland’s Vistula River, and America’s Shenandoah and mighty Missouri. Our programme, directed by Matthew Altham, contemplates includes music both profound and light-hearted, from spirituals to shanties.  With composers from Stanford to Samuel Barber, John Rutter to James MacMillan, there will be plenty to delight and surprise you.

Tickets £14 (under-18s £7), available from Winchelsea Arts.
