On Saturday June 25th residents of Wonersh enjoyed a concert at St. John’s Parish Church given by the Choir of Selwyn College Cambridge and the International Harp Ensemble.
Selwyn College has a connection with St. John’s as a patron of the parish church, so it was appropriate for St. John’s to feature on the chapel choir’s current tour. The International Harp Ensemble is the only one of its kind in Europe, and has toured several European countries and performed at many UK venues including the Barbican, Royal Albert Hall, and Guildford Cathedral, under its Director, Luisa-Maria Cordell. Selwyn College Choir, who have also performed in many prestigious venues including Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and toured in New Zealand, Canada and Europe, was conducted by Sarah MacDonald.
The Harp Ensemble performed a variety of music including both traditional and classical works ranging from Brubeck to Handel and Tchaikovsky, while Selwyn College Choir’s performance included works by Sir William Walton and Michael Tippett.
