Bring and Sing: Ave Verum Corpus

Saturday 28 October | the McCarthy | 4 - 5.30pm

Mozart’s music is at its most poignant in apparently simple pieces such as his Ave Verum Corpus. Enthusiastic singers are warmly invited to join this session led by Stuart Overington, in preparation for an informal performance as part of our opening night concert.

£20 per participant BUY TICKETS
Your Bring and Sing ticket includes a seat for the Saturday evening concert.

Opening night concert with Ensemble 360

Saturday 28 October | the Round | 7.30 – 9.10pm

- Variations on Mozart’s Là ci darem la mano for Oboe, Violin and Viola by Ludwig van Beethoven 
- Piano Trio in C K.548
- Ave verum corpus with Ensemble 360 and the ‘Bring and Sing’ Choir
- Piano Quartet in G minor K.478

The Piano Trio in C was written in 1788, one of Mozart's most prolific years. He was suffering from considerable financial hardship at the time, but no clue to that is given in this confident and charming piece.
