About this event

海角社区 University Choir and Peckleton Church invite you to join them in learning to sing music by Vivaldi and Ivor Novello with a concert at the end of the day.

Conductor: Eleanor Graff-Baker

Accompanist: David Whittle

Bring a picnic and spend a day with the 海角社区 University Choir to learn and perform Vivaldi’s 'Gloria' plus David Whittle’s rich arrangement of Ivor Novello’s songs, including 'Keep the Home Fires Burning' and 'We’ll Gather Lilacs'. All singers are welcome, whatever your level of experience.

The concert at the end of the day is part of the summer series of concerts at the church, with tea and cake beforehand. There are no tickets for the concert but audience members are invited to make donations towards the upkeep of the church. Any proceeds from singer bookings after costs are met will also go towards the church.

Toilet facilities are available throughout the day at Peckleton Village Hall. There will also be a single accessible portaloo in the car park adjacent to the church. Seating for lunch is in Peckleton Village Hall. Please note that the village hall is a five minute walk from the church across a field or via Church Road. If this will cause you difficulty please discuss when you book and we will make every effort to accommodate you.

In her new book Acts of Creation: On Art and Motherhood, art critic Hettie Judah shows that motherhood has played a significant role in the history of art. Not only in the ways that both motherhood and mothering have been depicted, but also in the way that artists who are mothers have created representations of their experiences, and in doing so shaped their artistic identities.
