Call out for a choir - Wren Choral Marathon

The City of London Festival is presenting a Wren ChoralMarathon on Saturday 27 June. Seventeen choirs will perform in seventeen of Christopher Wren’s City churches, including St Paul’s Cathedral, between 8 a.m. and 1 a.m. The a cappella concerts will feature a wide array of ensembles performing a broad range of musical styles. The concerts are free to attend, and with the churches spread around the Square Mile, it should be possible to attend them all!

Your schola could be part of this. The organisers hope to include a plainsong matins/lauds, or similar event, starting at 8 a.m. at St Michael Cornhill. The timings would be:

7 a.m. Access to the church
7:45 Doors open
8:00 Concert starts
8:40 Concert ends
9:30 Venue clear

If you would be interested in taking part, please contact Eleanor Mottram, the Festival Administrator (Eleanor.Mottram@colf.org, tel. 020 7583 3585).
