On Sunday 11th May, from 2-4pm, Great St Mary’s is delighted to be hosting the public launch event “Cambridge Sings for Cycle of Songs”.
This fun-filled afternoon will celebrate Cambridge’s singing talent and diversity to launch the innovative and inspiring Cycle of Songs project, which is funded by the Arts Council and will be taking place in the city on the 7th July to coincide with the visit of the Tour de France.
Cycle of Songs will bring stories from Cambridge’s past to life through nine new musical pieces, with local people of all ages sharing their voices and celebrating the city in song.
Find out more about the project at their website: http://www.cycleofsongs.com/
Participating choirs will meet for a song-filled celebration and all are welcome, so do bring along your friends and family too.
Musicians and choirs at the event will include Dowsing Sound Collective, ReSound, Chela the Cambridge Georgian Choir, Sing! Community Choir, Sur Taal Indian Music and Dance, Revelation Rock Gospel Choir, and importantly the host choir of Great St Mary’s itself.
Each choir will sing two favourite songs from their recent repertoire to the other choirs in a 10-15 minute time slot. The event will have a relaxed festival feel with refreshments and a live band afterwards.
This launch event will also be the first of many opportunities to participate in the Cycle of Songs project which will be taking place at various venues across Cambridge up to the 7th July to mark the visit of the Tour de France Stage 3.
There will be the opportunity to sign up for the Cycle of Songs Choir if you’d like to add your voice to the chorus celebrating Cambridge heritage!
If you would like to sign-up as a volunteer on the 11th May or at any of the other Cycle of Songs events you can do so by filling out a short sign-up form via http://cycleofsongs.com/sign_up/
