A joint concert with Scunthorpe & District Choral Society, Grimsby Philharmonic Society, Gainsborough Choral Society, Louth Choral Society, the children of Lincoln Cathedral Choir and Neustadt Liedertafel.

Over 350 singers from choirs throughout Greater Lincolnshire will join together to perform this Benjamin Britten masterpiece, one of the greatest works of the 20th Century, in Lincoln Cathedral in 2018.

This is Lincolnshire Remembers, a tribute to the fallen for the final year of the First World War Centenary commemorations.

Singers from Lincoln Choral Society, Grimsby’s Philharmonic Choir, Scunthorpe and District Choral Society, Louth Choral Society and Gainsborough Choral Society will be joined by The Lincoln Cathedral Choristers.

The large resources needed for this concert mean that there will be three conductors and two orchestras involved in its production.

The Music Director for the concert is Mark Wilde, Lincoln Choral Society Music Director. The other conductors involved are Louth Choral Society Music Director Allan Smith and Lincoln Cathedral Music Director Aric Prentice, who will direct the Cathedral Choristers.

Under the auspices of founder Malcolm Goodman MBE, ARCM,  Lincolnshire Chamber Orchestra augmented with extra professional instrumentalists will provide the musicians for this work.

We have secured award winning soloists for the occasion: internationally acclaimed dramatic soprano, Rachel Nicholls; Alessandro Fisher, tenor, winner of the 2016  Kathleen Ferrier Award, and Julien Van Mellaerts, baritone, winner of the 2017 Wigmore Hall / Kohn Foundation International Song Competition, and the 2017 Kathleen Ferrier Award.

This will be a stirring once in a lifetime event with record numbers of both singers and instrumentalists in the Cathedral. The commemoration will also be enhanced by the projection of the names of the fallen on the Nave ceiling. Names of the fallen are currently being collected for this purpose. In the first instance, message the dedicated Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WarRequiem2018//  with further information from your own family on this.

For further information about the Requiem contact Ed Wellman on Edwellman@outlook .com, or Dr Paul Stratton via Paulhotdoctor@aol.com.  Paul is the advertising and sponsorship expert, so please get in touch with him if this is your area of interest.

Elf the Musical JR

Blackfriars Theatre Academy

7.00pm

Blackfriars Theatre, Boston

Join the Blackfriars Theatre Academy in their first full production of this academic year. With 2 full Senior / Mid casts and a wonderful Junior chorus this is a show not to be missed.

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his stepbrother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make every young performer embrace his or her "inner elf" with plenty of large ensemble numbers featuring elves and (New Yorkers) of every type.

If you have a child in the show please contact amanda@blackfriarsartscentre.co.uk to find out which performance they will appear in before booking tickets.
