Commotio in concert
Commotio, one of Oxford’s foremost chamber choirs, founded and conducted by Univ OM Matthew Berry (1995, Music), presents An Evening with Bill and Bob (Celebrating Shakepeare and Chilcott) on 23 July at St Nicholas Church, Chadlington.
Commemorating 400 years since Shakespeare’s death, Commotio will breathe new life into Shakespeare’s familiar words with contemporary choral settings by Leslie, Hyde, Larsen and Łukaszewski. Following hot on the heels of the World Premiere, Commotio will give the first European performance of Bob Chilcott’s Ophelia, Caliban, and Miranda in which poet Charles Bennett gives new voice to Shakespeare’s much loved characters in this choral-jazz fusion.
Join Bob Chilcott and Commotio for a fantastic evening of world-class contemporary choral music, including the opportunity to meet one of Britain’s most celebrated contemporary composers. Tickets are £12 and £8 concessions.
