The Voyage

Wednesday 20 October, Millennium Forum, 7.30pm

The Road Home

Thursday 21 October, St. Columba's Church Long Tower, 9pm

Featuring award-winning chamber choir Codetta and Derry cellist Kim Vaughan, this concert will feature a stunningly beautiful  programme including Stephen Paulus' The Road Home, and the world premiere of a brand-new festival commission by Irish composer Eoghan Desmond, as part of the Colmcille 1500 celebratory programme. 

Free entry with retiring collection. Pre-registration essential.



Friday 22 October, St. Columb's Cathedral, 7.30pm

Join us for the return of award-winning vocal ensemble Tenebrae, under the direction of Nigel Short, for a stunning programme of choral singing in the beautiful surroundings of the historic St. Columb’s Cathedral.

Tenebrae will perform their Humanity and Liberty programme featuring Benjamin Britten’s Hymn to St Cecilia, Philip Moore’s Evening Prayers and Francis Poulenc’s Figure Humaine. The message in this programme is one of peace, the longing for it and the beauty, innocence and simplicity that can result from it.

“For purity and precision of tone, and flawless intonation, Nigel Short’s chamber choir Tenebrae is pretty much unbeatable.” – The Times

Tickets £25/£15 plus booking fees



Saturday 23 October, Online, 8pm

Join us for a virtual treat with Grammy Award-winning American a cappella ensemble Chanticleer, described as the “world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker, and known across the globe as the “orchestra of voices”.

Chanticleer have created a stunning bespoke virtual concert entitled After A Dream. It is a beautiful celebration of awakening as we emerge from this challenging period of isolation with a new appreciation for art, music, and human connection. Featuring works by Claudio Monteverdi, Orlande de Lassus, William Byrd and Gabriel Fauré, as well as contemporary songs by Des’ree, Gotye, and Ayanna Woods.

Filmed at the Craneway Pavillion, Richmond and the Oliver Ranch, Geyserville, in California.
