‘The perfect choir’ The Times
‘We’ve had a lovely evening watching Gospel at Clonter…We had our Clonter “picnic” as usual before the performance and in the interval with a bottle of fizz and did our best to recreate the real thing – we even dressed up and sung and clapped along! As good a start to Christmas as might be this year… We look forward to live action as soon as may be in 2021 and in the meantime we are so grateful to you all for keeping things going despite all the problems.’ DJW
‘Just to say how much we enjoyed last night’s concert. No, it was not as good as’ the real thing’ but it was uplifting and delightful. We enjoyed seeing familiar faces. It was just the ticket for these depressing times. I didn’t get to hear my choice, but I got “Going Home” which was superb. Hope Clonter will survive these difficult times and I hope to see you in the Theatre next year.’ Ike
‘…we have just thoroughly enjoyed the concert. Please pass on our thanks to the London Adventist Chorale and Ken Burton for another wonderful concert (we came to Clonter last year to hear the choir) and for including our request.’ Julia & Michael
‘LOVED the Gospel concert last Saturday. We made an evening of it and enjoyed being able to see the performance from all the different angles, and close-ups of the singers…‘ Brenda
‘ Enjoyed it very much…sent it round Congleton and Sandbach, and further even as far as France, Canada, America, Australia.’ Lorraine
Whilst we were very disappointed that we were not able to host both the loyal Gospel audience and the London Adventist chorale in our theatre this year, we were so delighted that Ken Burton managed to convene 14 members of his choir, from all over the country, to record this special Christmas concert for Clonter from St. Marys, Ealing, London.
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.
