Next Singing Day - 16th May 2020
Dyson The Canterbury Pilgrims

Join Us For Another Wonderful Day's Singing

A Chance to sing George Dyson's lively and popular work. The sprightly rhythms and wonderfully singable melodies bring Chaucer's characters vividly to life.

The ever popular Tatton Singers Saturday Singing Day is held annually in St. John's Church, Knutsford. Everyone who enjoys singing is welcome to join the Tatton Singers in discovering new repertoire. John Powell, the highly regarded Tatton Singers Musical Director, leads the Singing Day choir through vocal exercises and rehearsal to the afternoon performance for the general public. This sought-after day is complemented by a delicious cake sale. Please do CONTACT US, to receive advance notification of this day and other events.

With thanks to Past_notes

For this year’s Singing Day, we shall be exploring George Dyson’s The Canterbury Pilgrims. As with several of Tatton Singers’ recent Singing Days, this is an opportunity to discover a piece which is far too rarely performed on the concert stage nowadays. Written in 1930, and regularly performed by ambitious choral societies throughout the middle decades of the century, this exuberant music is quite simply great fun to sing! The complete piece consists of thirteen ‘Portraits’ - we shall work on eight of them, and at the end of the day be joined by soloists for an informal public performance.

We welcome everyone who enjoys singing and discovering new repertoire.
Registration from 9.30am , cost £22 for adults, and £5 for students
