Ely Cathedral Cambridge

Popular local orchestra to take Cathedral audience on a musical journey through Europe and North Africa, with a hundred and fifty years of romance, opera and film
Ely Cathedral, Saturday 2 October 2010, 7.30pm
A treat is in store for anyone visiting Ely Cathedral on Saturday 2 October 2010, when rising local community orchestra, Ely Sinfonia, takes the audience on an imaginary journey in the footsteps of 19th and early 20th century young adventurers. The orchestra’s Grand Tour takes in France, Italy and Algeria and spans a hundred years of music from classical to jazz, in a programme that includes the overture to Rossini’s opera, “Italian Girl in Algiers”, Berlioz’s “Harold in Italy” (with Brenda Stewart, viola) and Gershwin’s “An American in Paris”.
A limited number of £20 premium tickets are available. These include preferential seating at the front of the Cathedral and a complimentary programme. Other tickets cost £17.50, £12.50 or £10 (reserved), or £5 (unreserved). All tickets are now available from Burrows Bookshop, High St Passage, Ely (Tel: 01353 669759), from Ely Cathedral Box Office (Tel 01353 660349, email box.office@cathedral.ely.anglican.org and online from https://tickets.elycathedral.org.
Written in just 21 days by the 21-year-old Rossini , ”The Italian Girl in Algiers” tells the story of love lost and found, slavery, pirates and even a shipwreck. The overture is still one of his best-known works, full of surprise and contrasts from the very start. Full of energy, sparkle, drama and good humour, it is a fun-filled and charming jewel of an overture.

Touchable Dreams

Touchable Dreams
Ely Methodist Church

Local celebrity duo intertwine violin, electric violin, loops, guitar and voice in a profound homage to love. Presented by the Friends of Ely Sinfonia, Ely Methodist Church, Friday 10th September 2010, 7.30pm

Celebrated local musician, Steve Bingham, is teaming up with wordsmith Jeremy Harmer on Friday 10th September for an evening dedicated to love. Presented by the Friends of Ely Sinfonia and taking place at Ely Methodist Church, the event combines classical and electric violin, loops, guitar and voice, demonstrating the passion, tenderness and agony of deep feeling, as they are brought out by both music and the spoken word.

Touchable Dreams explores the symbiosis between words and music and the ways in which they echo and complement each other. Sometimes words follow the music; at other times music follows the words; and sometimes the words and the music are intertwined in an almost physical interdependency.

“This is an event unlike any you'll have experienced before,” says Roz Chalmers, who chairs Ely Sinfonia. “When I first heard Jeremy and Steve with their unique combination of modern and classical music and words, I was completely bowled over.”

Jeremy Harmer says: “We try to show how music and words, the very bases of human emotion, can co-exist and enhance each other in expressing one of the greatest emotions of the human experience – love. We describe romantic love, transient love, ridiculous love, bitter love, lost love and sublime love.”
