Shavnabada Georgian Choir

Shavnabada Georgian Choir
Trinity College Chapel

A unique opportunity to see a truely incredible choir from Tbilisi Georgia. Shavnabada returns after a brief visit to Cambridge in May 2009 where they were seen as outstanding. One of the Patriarch's choirs, Shavnabada makes accessible to an English audience Georgian traditions, song, (both chuch and folk), dance and culture through an English narrative and exciting performance.

Lead by Davit Tsintsadze the artistic director and inspiration behind the choir of 12 strong male voices, Shavnabada's passions lie in resurrecting Monastery and Folk Music that had all but disappeared from Georgian culture as a result of Georgia being part of the Soviet Union. Davit has made it his life's work to find, record and film examples of traditional Georgian singing in order to preserve, resurrect, sing and celebrate it across the country and across the world. Shavnabada have been schooled by the great Anzor Erkomaishvili, who founded the Rustavi ensemble and it is within this spirit Shavnabada now perform and teach otherwise previously unheard Georgian folk and church music.

Shavnabada will be giving a workshop at St. Paul's church Thursday 11th November 7:00-10:00pm

Emmanuel United Reformed Church

The Stapleford Singers and Sinfonia will be joining forces with the Orchestra and choir of Great St. Mary’s (The University Church) in a performance of Elgar’s ‘The Music Makers’. The concert will also include works by Parry and other orchestral music and promises to be an event not to be missed.
‘The Music Makers’ is a wonderful work and Elgar includes a number of quotations from his earlier compositions (Sea Pictures, The Dream of Gerontius, The Enigma Variations and both symphonies) and there is no doubting that Elgar felt a strong affinity with the words of the poem by Arthur O'Shaunessey, identifying himself with the 'dreamer of dreams'.
