Quire World Music Community Choir, Colchester’s World Music Choir and KTÊMA – Hennebont from Brittany, France join forces to bring an evening of world music with a total of 90 singers.

Following their hugely successful tour to Brittany last year Quire are returning the favour by hosting Ktêma, the renowned World Music Choir led by Jérémy Simon, on their first British tour.

Quire and Ktêma learn ‘folk’ choral music from many traditions including American Gospel, Central and Southern African Gospel and Work song, Hispanic song, British, Celtic and West Gallery song. Also included in our repertoire are Russian, German, French, Maori, Tahitian, Irish and Dutch songs, many sung in the original language. The lists are ever expanding.

Our joint performances are lively, audience-friendly, exuberant and straight from the heart. We dance, we clap, we click our fingers and stamp our feet as well as singing in four-part harmony – YES – all at the same time! We enter into the spirit of songs we sing.

The concert will raise funds for ‘Holiday Dinners’ – a new initiative to provide home-cooked dinners in the school holidays to primary aged children who receive a free breakfast in the school term.

Tickets £8 in advance; £10 on the door

Early in the afternoon you may catch us singing in Promenade Park (weather permitting) as we warm up for the evening Concert that starts at 8pm.
