Music: National Youth Chamber Choir - Sun, Sea, Sky, Stars

An exciting performance by the National Youth Chamber Choir takes place at St John's Church, Workington, on Saturday 10 March. This is a Rosehill on the Road production, in association with the Rotary Club of Workington and supported by Allerdale Borough Council and a number of Cumbria county councillors.

"My soul, there is a country far beyond the stars" – the opening words of Hubert Parry's glorious Songs of Farewell introduce a truly heavenly choral journey, guided by outstanding young voices.

The programme features traditional classics alongside contemporary gems. As well as Parry's work, the evening will include Eric Whitacre's Lux Aurumque, Underneath the Stars by Kate Rusby and Love Endureth by 2018 Last Night of the Proms composer Roxanna Panufnik.

The chamber choir is a handpicked ensemble drawn from the ranks of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain. Members are aged 18-25 and are typically enrolled in music further education or at the outset of junior singing careers.

The core octet of the group is made of up eight current NYCGB Fellowship holders, who are in receipt of a dedicated professional training programme.

As part of their exciting visit to West Cumbria, the choir will also perform a special schools concert on Monday 11 March at Rosehill. Please contact the box office or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for further details.
