Songs My Mother Taught Me
Cambridge Partners are delighted to be a sponsor of The Jubilate Singers first concert for 2018. This very special afternoon event is called ‘Songs my Mother Taught Me’ and, as the concert is one week before Mothers’ Day, it would make the perfect early Mothers Day present.
As their regular Musical Director, Susan Densem, has taken sabbatical leave for the year, the Jubilate Singers have taken the opportunity to offer the role to special guest musicians. First up for this concert is Matthew Everingham, Christchurch based musical director, conductor, composer and pianist.
Michael has put together a wonderful programme of choral music written for, by and about mothers – from the Renaissance to the present day. It features composers Aleotti, Finzi, C Schumann, F Mendelssohn, Whitacre, Lauridsen, Sondheim and Lennon and McCartney, among others.
Matt attended St Bede’s College, the University of Canterbury and Trinity College, London. Matt’s first encounter with the Jubilate Singers was with the Court Theatre’s production ‘The Events’ in 2016. He recently completed a successful season at the Court as Deputy Musical Director for ‘Chicago’, and is currently performing in the Showbiz production ‘Wicked’.
‘Songs my Mother Taught Me’ will be performed at 2.00pm on Sunday 6 May, 2018, at the Piano Centre for Music and the Arts, 156 Armagh Street, Christchurch.
Tickets are $25 ($20 unwaged and retirees), children are free. This includes afternoon tea. For bookings please phone Steve French 3586161 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
