Exultate Singers: Ikon – music from the Russian and Greek Orthodox Churches

Saturday 12th October at 7.30pm, St James’ Priory, Bristol

As part of the Bristol Festival of Song 2013, Exultate Singers performs an atmospheric programme of music written for the Russian and Greek Orthodox churches, including works by John Tavener, Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Chesnokov, Schnittke and Grechaninov.

This is music of pure theatre – passionate, lyrical and hypnotic. Exultate Singers is known for its engaging performances, making use of the building’s spatial effects with singers placed in different positions around the church throughout the concert. For particular pieces of music, the singers encircle the audience, enveloping it with stunning live surround sound, a spellbinding experience.

Tickets are £15 for adults, £13 for concessions, £5 for students in full time education and £2 for under 18s. Buy online from the Exultate Singers’ shop or telephone the box office Opus 13 on 0117 942 8779, open from 9am until 5.30pm, Monday to Saturday
