Please come audition for Springtime for Haman. In this sequel to Cambridge composer David Bass's romantic opera The Coronation of Esther, Queen Esther risks her life to save her cousin Mordechai and the Jewish people from Haman, the vengeful Grand Vizier of Persia. Springtime for Haman is a sensitive and entertaining portrayal of the biblical story in two 50-minute acts and features lyrical music in a variety of popular and classical styles. Presented by an inter-generational cast in English with side titles. Listen to our 2010 performance of Springtime for Haman HERE.
2017 Science Festival Chorus
Weather and Climate
Once again, we will be presenting a program of science songs at the 2017 Cambridge Science Festival in April. This year's production will be a series of songs on the theme of weather and climate. For a sample of such a song, listen to "The Ozone Song" by David Haines.
This year's Science Festival Chorus concert will comprise about 20 songs by several contemporary composers. We will also sing a medley of songs composed by Cambridge Public School students under the direction of David Haines, as part of David's CPS Songwriting Workshops. The entire program will include an accompanying slideshow of song lyrics and children's artwork.
Watch this space in January for registration and rehearsal information.
