The Summer Singers are directed and managed by experienced choral director, Robert Bunting, and accompanied by repetiteur, Steve Dunachie.

Following our exhilarating partnership with BISYOC (Bedstone International Summer Youth Orchestra Camp) in 2016, when we sang Eric Whitacre’s Equus and The Seal Lullaby, we invite you to join us in 2017 to sing Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor and Morten Lauridsen’s Sure On This Shining Night.

The programme will also include Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No 6, Delius’s A Walk To The Paradise Garden and John Adams’ A Short Ride In A Fast Machine. The Borodin is well known and loved for its yearning romantic melodies and wild pagan dance rhythms yet little sung by choral societies because it needs a large and brilliant orchestra. The Lauridsen is a gentle lyrical setting for choir and piano in a modern American style which matches the John Adams piece well.

In order to further develop the ever-increasing quality of our choral work with BISYOC, rehearsal time will be slightly extended this year. This will enable us to polish every note and to achieve the closest possible communication with the orchestra, which is one of the special joys of the BISYOC experience.
