Let the Lucy Cavendish Singers take you on a star-lit musical journey with a sparkling mix of close harmony, traditional and classical music – all woven into a seamless programme of solos, accompanied small groups and full choir a capella songs. From Hildegard von Bingen’s Spiritus Sanctus and arrangements of sephardic and Scandinavian folksongs, to iconic works by Samuel Barber, Leonard Cohen and James MacMillan, prepare to sit back and be mesmerised by some heavenly music. Water-tuned wine glasses will even make an appearance for Eriks Ešenvalds ethereal Stars!

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
The Singers were formed at Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge in 2008 by their Director Katharina Megli. Members of the choir include fellows and alumnae of the college as well as of other Cambridge colleges, employees of the University and singers drawn from the wider community. Since their first public concert in 2009, the Lucy Cavendish Singers have been capturing the hearts and minds of audiences with their vibrant performances and imaginative programmes. Performing entirely from memory, the Singers bring enormous commitment and spontaneity to their songs. The varied musical backgrounds of the members support a wide-ranging repertoire from jazz and traditional music to classical pieces, with music often chosen to showcase the unique talents of individual members in solos or as part of smaller groups.
The Singers give regular public concerts throughout the year in their home town of Cambridge, as well as on tour in other parts of the UK. They have performed at Canada House, Trafalgar Square and as part of Cambridge’s Women of the World Festival, Cambridge Festival of Ideas, Cambridge Summer Music’s Music in Quiet Places series and the Fitzwilliam Museum’s Sunday Prom concerts. The choir regularly provides the choral music for Cambridge University’s staff carol service and in June 2016 recorded its debut CD, 'Bittersweet'.
