Meridian Brass have finalised their programme for their ‘Songs of the Sea’ performance in the Clore ballroom at the Royal Festival Hall on Sunday 7th August. Starting with Duncan Ward’s piece ‘Ave Maris Stella’ they will continue the maritime theme playing two sea songs by Holst, a suite from the ‘Fairy Queen’ (Purcell’s setting of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’),’ Drakes Drum’ from Stanford’s ‘Songs of the Sea’ and ‘Haisborough Light’, a work being learnt in the VOICELAB workshop before the performance.
Meridian Brass will be running a vocal workshop with an animateur from VOICE LAB before their performance at the Clore ballroom, Royal Festival Hall on Sunday 7th August. You are invited to join us in learning a setting of the traditional sea shanty ‘Windy Old Weather’. The vocal workshop will start at 12pm and last an hour and those who take part will be able to join us to sing in our performance at 1pm.
