Join the Northampton Philharmonic Choir for two contrasting works.

Bob Chilcott’s A Little Jazz Mass is a unique and engaging piece that combines the traditional Latin Mass text with jazz rhythms and harmonies. It’s a highly original concert setting of the Latin Missa brevis, where the movements embrace a variety of jazz styles.

In contrast, in the second half, the Choir will perform Andrew Carter’s Benedicite. 'Benedicite' is a choral composition that sets the hymn Benedicite from the Book of Common Prayer to music, along with additional free texts. For the performance the Choir will be joined by the choir of All Saints CEVA Primary School, Northampton.

 

* Although included as part of our Saturdays at 4 series, please note that this event has been arranged separately by the Northampton Philharmonic Choir and will be held at 6:30pm.

Concluding our Saturdays at 4 series, we are thrilled to feature the exceptionally talented pianist, Christian-Peter Hiemstra. Christian, in Year 8, achieved remarkable success by reaching the final of the prestigious International Neuchâtel Piano Competition.

Christian's impressive track record includes winning the Royal College of Music’s annual junior competition in 2022, and participating in enriching musical experiences across Europe. He attended the summer school for Young Talent at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, where he delivered a stunning performance of Beethoven’s Piano Trio in G Major. His musical journey continued in Salzburg at the Universität Mozarteum.

Having started playing the piano at just five years old, Christian is deeply committed to his craft, attending the Royal College of Music every Saturday and practicing diligently. Join us for a performance that not only showcases Christian's virtuosity but also his profound dedication to music.
