GOSPEL@CLONTER – DIGITAL OUTREACH
Saturday 5th December 2020 to Saturday 12th December 2020
‘The perfect choir’ The Times
Having largely accepted that we may well still not be able to invite you to see the London Adventist Chorale physically in our theatre this year, we are now aiming to beam them directly into your sitting room instead.
In order to turn a negative into a positive, we would like to invite you to engage with the choir and their leader, in advance of the event, which is not something we are usually able to do.
We would like to invite you to submit requests in advance, which we will then pass on to Ken Burton, who will do his utmost to accommodate as many requests as possible.
Hailed as one of the world’s greatest gospel choirs, the London Adventist Chorale has been a regular annual fixture at Clonter for over 12 years, by very popular request.
The London Adventist Chorale was formed in 1981, to bring together and develop the talents of singers from various Seventh-day Adventist Churches. Its current principal conductor, Ken Burton of BBC ‘The Choir’ fame, has conducted the choir for over two decades.
Its repertoire over the years has included music in Hebrew, African-American Spirituals, close harmony, and western choral music, from Renaissance through to new commissioned work.
The Chorale’s performances have been experienced by tens of millions world-wide on stage, screen, recordings and radio appearances. The choir has performed in most of the UK’s major performance venues. Among the many notable venues and performances are Buckingham Palace on the occasion of Her Majesty The Queen’s Gold Jubilee, Toronto’s Sky Dome before an audience of seventy thousand , and BBC Proms concerts. One Times reviewer was so taken aback, he wrote in the newspaper that he had found ‘the perfect choir‘.
In 1994, the choir won the prestigious ‘Choir Of The Year’ title, and was awarded BBC UK Gospel Choir Of the Year by the BBC a year later.
The choir has worked in collaboration with a number of notable artists, including Bryn Terfel CBE, Sir Willard White, Larnelle Harris, Wynton Marsalis, Wilhelmenia Fernandez and Lesley Garrett.
‘Pay What You Feel’ Policy
Having presented our digital outreach programme for free thus far, sadly as this situation has gone on much longer than we thought, we now feel that we must adopt a mechanism that is helping keep the prospect of theatres reopening globally a possibility, and that is to ask that any future content is purchased on a ‘Pay What You Feel’ basis. This also enables us to offer this FREE to Friends and Patrons of Clonter.
E-Tickets £10, £20, £30
This event will be broadcast ‘live’ at 7pm on Saturday 5th December, but the show will be available for one week following broadcast.
If you would like to submit a request, book an E-ticket or have any queries, please contact our box office – firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware that the box office is only currently being manned on a Wednesday and Friday at the moment.
