Music played an enormous role in the works of William Shakespeare, while his own sonnets, poems and soliloquies have provided continuing inspiration for many composers through the years. Having all sung as part of the most recent cohort of Genesis Sixteen, this group of singers has recently formed to continue singing together the music that they love. From every corner of the UK they meet to work on repertoire on a project-by-project basis.
This concert will be approx. 2 hours long, including an interval.
