Cambridge’s latest singing wonders, Timeline Choir, appropriately go back through the centuries for a celebration of Shakespearean song in their inaugural concert on 19 November.
Working with cutting-edge trio Juice Vocal Ensemble, the choir draw inspiration from sounds of theatres and taverns, songs of the street and cries of market traders to reimagine the atmosphere of a performance at The Globe, where people from all walks of life came together to watch The Bard’s work at the time.
The choir will perform works from the period in original pronunciation. Timeline Choir director Stef Conner explains: “I don’t know why more choirs don’t sing in original pronunciation. It gives us the chance to hear all of the rhymes, puns and double entendres.”
Tickets are £12 for a 7.30pm performance at Emmanuel United Reformed Church on Trumpington Street.
