A ROYAL JUBILEE - 3 JUNE 7 P.M. - TICKETS NOW ON SALE

 

Celebrate the Friday evening of the Royal Jubilee weekend with this special collection of royal music from 9th to 20th centuries performed by Lerion Consort. The distinguished London-based vocal ensemble performs anthems, madrigals, chants, chansons, partying and motets composed for royal occasions by Josquin, Byrd, Pucell, Walton and others, including a few monarchs themselves to tell a musical story of 'Courts and Conflict through the Ages’.

The Lerion Consort is a professional vocal ensemble already carving out a niche in the world of classical performance, with their special focus on breaking down the formalities and barriers surrounding classical music. Featuring an expressive sound, the Lerion Consort aims to draw out the best that choral music has to offer through an exciting, imaginative repertoire and strong, soloistic singing, yet as a close ensemble.

The consort was founded by its musical director and conductor, Joe Tobin, after he graduated with distinction from the Masters programme in Choral Conducting at the Royal Academy of Music, where he won the Academy's Sir Thomas Armstrong Choral Leadership Prize and Irene Burcher Prizes. Among several other appointments, Joe is currently well-known in this area as the conductor of Penshurst Choral Society.

Other singers on the night will include Isabelle Haile (soprano), Tamson Raitt (soprano), Helena Cooke (alto), James Botcher (tenor and well-known beatboxer!) and David Valsamedis (bass).
