This year’s Concerts at King’s season closes with two contrasting concerts, each ideal for a summer’s evening.
On Friday 20 June the King's College Choir performs an all Mozart programme in the glorious surroundings of King’s College Chapel. The Choir is joined by the London Mozart Players and a cast of talented young soloists under the baton of Stephen Cleobury.
The programme opens with Mozart’s ever-popular Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, a beautiful serenade for a summer evening. Then the award-winning pianist Tom Poster plays the Piano concerto K414, which is much prized for its elegant melodic ideas and Mozartian charm.
To finish the evening, the Choir performs Mozart’s Mass in C Minor, the ‘Great Mass’, written for his bride Constanze, for whom he composed the beautiful ‘Et Incarnatus est’.
On Sunday 22 June the King’s Men, the Choral Scholars of the Choir, perform a wide range of close harmony songs from a punt on the river behind the Chapel. Bring your picnic and enjoy a quintessentially Cambridge experience.
