28 April 5pm Chapel Choir Concert - Fauré Requiem
As the Chapel Choir prepare to go on tour to Georgia this summer, they are putting on a concert which is open to all. They will take a retiring collection to help them raise money to support them in their travels.
30 April Concert - Vocallegro
The male-voice choir Vocallegro was founded in 1996 at the church of St Nikolai in Hamburg under the direction of Arpad Christian Thuroczy. The aim was to create a body of sound that interprets choral music for male voices in exemplary fashion and at a high artistic level.
In the short time of its existence, Vocallegro has established itself as a unique and integral part of Hamburg's musical life and has acquired a considerable reputation.
The repertoire of the 25-strong group of singers includes sacred and secular choral music of all eras. Spirituals and popular songs complete the versatile programme.
In Hamburg Vocallegro can be heard regularly in church services at St Nikolai. The ensemble organizes concerts several times a year in northern Germany and performs at civic and church functions.
At the end of April 2018 Vocallegro will be giving two concerts in Oxfordshire, one at the church of St Mary Magdalene in Woodstock (28 April) and one at Jesus College, Oxford (30 April). They will perform music written by Thomas Tallis, Anton Bruckner, Franz Schubert, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Richard Wagner and others.
1 May Colloquium
MCR member and former Prime Minister of Australia Kevin Rudd will be speaking for us at a Chaplain's Colloquium on 1st May, 8.30-10pm, over wine and cheese in the Ship Street Centre.
The Chaplain’s Colloquium series touches on issues pertaining to spirituality and faith, all faiths and none, in the secular setting. His talk will be “Faith, Politics and the Public Square”. After some formal input we break out into the Bastion area where we can talk to him and one another about what he’s made us think about (or just enjoy the cheese and wine. We'll be having some Australian wine of course).
Kosher and non-alcoholic provisions will be available.
All members of College, their guests and friends are welcome.
