Het Purcell Kamerorkest & the church choir

  • 03:15 PM
  • Begijnhof 48 1012 WV Amsterdam

Sunday, November 17th at 15.15.

The church choir will be joining with the Purcell Chamber Orchestra to give an afternoon concert. The orchestra has long been affiliated with the ERC, making us their permanent home for an annual series of three concerts. This year our own choir will join forces with them for a splendid pre-Advent program of music – “In Expectation…” The program will include a setting of the Magnificat, Mary’s beautiful response to Gabriel’s message to her. This will give the choir a chance to stretch beyond what they can usually do during a morning service. It promises to be a concert you won’t want to miss! Entrance: €15/€12. The choir’s share of the proceeds will go towards the purchase of new choir robes.
