From Mad Hatter to Birds and Bees

Cantamus, Shipston’s a cappella choir led by Richard Emms held a wonderful tea party in the Townsend Hall in March, on behalf of the Mad Hatter. With an appreciative audience, yummy cakes and bakes to go with the tea, a proliferation of hats and teddy bears, a musical programme which ranged from the purity of Palestrina to the wit of Tom Lehrer, some belly-laugh inducing readings from Anne Hume, and stately renaissance dance performances – there really was something to appeal to everyone.

In June, Cantamus will be presenting a programme with Three’s Company, entitled “The Birds And The Bees”, as part of Shipston Proms. The concert will be in St. Edmund’s Church at 7.30.p.m. on Monday June 18th., and tickets (at £8.00) will be available later in May from Clarke’s Electrical Shop in Shipston, from choir members, and on the door.

Cantamus expects its members to be experienced and confident sight-singers, and offers a really broad repertoire of music across different centuries and styles, and presents regular concerts in South Warwickshire and the North Cotswolds. If you would like an opportunity to explore the possibility of a concert, please do get in touch with Yvonne Ridley, Cantamus’ concert manager, on 01789 269587. Currently the choir has a vacancy for tenors, and any interested tenors should contact Richard Emms, the director, at 01608 662163.
