The combined choirs of King Edward VI (KEVI) High School and Mid Northumberland Chorus, with more than 150 singers, will be performing Carmina Burana at the King’s Hall in Newcastle University on Saturday.

The first half of the concert will feature The Kevi Community Orchestra, who will play an exciting programme of symphonic music.

Isolde Roxby is returning to sing the soprano solo in Carmina Burana, together with fellow singers who trained at the Guildhall School of Music.

Piano accompaniment will be by David Murray and Sarah Gordon Robinson, and Andrew Booth will lead the five percussionists.

Head of Music at KEVI Robin Forbes will conduct both the choir and orchestra.

Sally-Anne Woolley, Chairman of the Mid Northumberland Chorus, said: “This promises to be a very exciting concert and well worth the trip to Newcastle watch the performance in such a beautiful venue.”

The concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10 and may be available on the night, but can also be booked in advance by telephone on 01670 788869.

The Mid Northumberland Chorus is based in Morpeth for people who like to sing for pleasure. See www.midnorthumberlandchorus.org.uk
