John Rutter

Come & Sing with JOHN RUTTER,
Patron of Wells Cathedral Oratorio Society 

When: Saturday 2nd May 2020 11 am - 4.45 pm
Venue: Wells Cathedral
Tickets: £20 (students £10)

Share this wonderful opportunity to spend the day with one of Britain's leading choral composers and conductors in the glorious setting of Wells Cathedral.

The day is open to singers of all abilities and confidence levels. Some sight-singing ability will be beneficial, though the pace of the day will be relaxed and informal. We are fortunate to have Jeremy Cole, Director of Music at Wells Cathedral, as our accompanist for the day both on piano and organ.

We will be singing John Rutter's Requiem and a selection of other pieces, old and new, including John's own, much loved, choral works.

Although Wells cathedral is large, numbers are limited and we recommend you book now to avoid disappointment.

We use PayPal for payment but you can pay with any credit/debit card.

This is a ticketless event and your Paypal receipt will act as your ticket. If you do not have a PayPal receipt to print out, simply bring proof of your email address.
