Divers Voyces to perform again at Holy Trinity; Bolton-le-Sands 21st April 4pm

We are once again pleased to welcome to come and perform for us at Holy Trinity.  The concert is called “Shakespeare in Harmony” which I am sure will give a clue as to it’s content.
Divers Voyces is an eleven-strong, mixed-voice, amateur choir based in Lancaster, England. They rehearse at Lancaster University, and have been doing so regularly since their founding by soprano-physicist, Rose Lerner, in late 2007
The choir says:
“Most of our repertoire is a-capella, in four to eight parts, and is chosen by members to be sung primarily for our own enjoyment. We (try to) sing madrigals, masses and motets, pre-modern music, post-modern music and anything in between.  Lancaster finest eleven-voice amateur choir.”

Ian Tate will be there accompanist.  His experience in piano accompaniment began at school choir concerts, which led to busy student days playing for soloists and ensembles, firstly as an undergraduate at the University College of North Wales, Bangor, and as a post-graduate accompanist at the RNCM.His professional performing activities over 30 years, based in Manchester, have included duo and chamber ensembles with members of the Manchester orchestras, acclaimed contemporary music recordings with members of the RNCM and work in musical theatre. Local performances have include a woodwind and piano ensemble at the Sedbergh Festival and at Brantwood, Coniston in 2004 and a violin and piano recital at Brantwood in 2009. Since 1999 he has been pianist to the Maia Singers, Stockport, giving regular performances around Greater Manchester and Cheshire.

His experience as a teacher over the same period has included performance to diploma and degree levels and lecturing in music at N.W. institutions of Further & Higher Education, including the University of Central Lancashire.
