Powerful and Dangerous!
We are delighted to be presenting a concert by The Fourth Choir, London’s leading LGBT+ chamber choir. Known for their performances of great choral works from early music to contemporary choral masterpiece, the choir was formed in 2013, and has built a reputation on the world-class classical music scene. ‘Powerful and Dangerous’ celebrates an extraordinary group of women from different centuries and from many walks of life from Queen Elizabeth I (one of the most notable people to stay here at the Charterhouse) to Lady Phyll, from Sappho to Marielle Franco, and from Nina Simone to Lyra McKee. The music will be just as diverse as these amazing women are – with compositions by African-American Rosephayne Powell, Baroque nun Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, and Italian singer Barbara Strozzi, as well as music honouring women written by John Wilbye, Francis Poulenc, and a set of Mexican folk songs by David Conte. Narrators for the evening will be two “Great Ladies of the Theatre” – Fourth Choir Patron, Dame Ann Murray and Annette Badland.
We regret that this event has now SOLD OUT!
