SCO Chorus

Join the SCO Chorus for a seasonal journey from the joyful Renaissance to the lyrical expressiveness of today’s music by Pärt and Whitacre. Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque (Light and Gold) is extraordinarily lush, and creates a slowly evolving wash of colours and light through the lyrics “Light, warm and heavy as pure gold, and the angels sing softly to the newborn babe.”

Information and bookings (£6 – £14) on the SCO Website.
