Prom Concert Comes to York on Saturday 22 September

Prom Praise York

Thursday 26th July 2012

Joining the All Souls Orchestra, their Director Noël Tredinnick will be the 100 strong locally recruited Prom Praise York choir along with co-host the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu.

The Prom season is already in full swing and now is the time to book your ticket for Prom Praise coming to the York Barbican in September.  This wonderful blend of sacred and classical music combines the spirit of Last Night of the Proms with the much loved Songs of Praise.

Fresh from its 40th anniversary concert at the Royal Albert Hall, the All Souls Orchestra, under the energetic baton of conductor and director Noël Tredinnick, will bring that same atmosphere to York on Saturday 22 September.  Joining them on stage will be the 100 strong locally recruited Prom Praise York choir along with co-host the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu.

Soloist David Erik has starred in many West End shows including, most recently, Chess directed by Craig Revel Horwood.  David’s wife, singer Kelly Rainford, will also perform in a programme that is expected to reflect themes of celebration, creation and theatre.  Hymns new and old will complete an amazing evening of music-making and praise.

There are still a few places left for people who want to be involved.  Rehearsals are about to begin and there is still space for one or two more tenors and basses.  If you want to take part in Prom Praise York, contact the organisers via choir@prompraiseyork.org.uk

More information is available at www.prompraiseyork.org.uk and tickets are now on sale at the York Barbican at www.yorkbarbican.co.uk.
