Invicta Voices Concert
Join Invicta Voices for a magical evening of choral music at Arundel Cathedral in support of two local charities.
On Saturday 14th May at 7:30pm, Invicta Voices, one of London’s leading capella chamber choirs, is holding a concert in the magical surroundings of Arundel Cathedral – raising funds for Turning Tides and St Barnabas House.
The concert promises to be a real treat for lovers of choral music as the much-celebrated Invicta Voices will resonate around the majestic interior of Arundel Cathedral. The concert will include stunning choral works such as Eric Whitaker’s ‘What David Heard’ and Elgar’s ‘Lux Aeterna’. The choir will be conducted by Matt Bamford, who graduated from the University of Kent (2014). Whilst studying, Matt conducted the University of Kent Chamber Choir and was Music Director for the University of Kent Musical Theatre Society. Under Matt’s direction, Invicta has performed at numerous prestigious venues across the UK and Europe including St. Martin in the Fields, Kings Place, Canterbury Cathedral, and in Leichlingen, Germany. Matt also recently launched and now conducts a community choir for St Barnabas and Chestnut Tree House.
Invicta Voices perform a vast array of vocal music, ranging from traditional choral polyphony to European premieres of new music by leading contemporary composers. The choir recently featured on a global TV/Film and social media campaign for Adidas and Real Madrid.
The singers come from all walks of life; teachers, musicians, lawyers, consultants and TV producers to name just a few. Although they have a diverse range of backgrounds – everyone is united by their shared passion for music and choral singing.
Tickets are £25 and under 18’s and students have a concessionary rate at £12.50. Included in the price of entry will be a complimentary drink and canapes. All proceeds will go to supporting the much-respected local charities – St Barnabas House and Turning Tides.
St Barnabas House is the adult hospice for the Worthing, Adur and Arun area, providing specialist palliative care to adults with life-limiting illnesses, both within the hospice and in the comfort of patients’ homes.
Turning Tides is the largest provider of homeless support services across the county. For 3o years, they have supported thousands of people experiencing homelessness to transform their lives – to find their pathway out of homelessness.
Ruth Poyner, Head of Fundraising, remarks: “We are absolutely delighted that such a renowned and versatile choir will be singing at such a wonderful historic landmark in aid of two local charities. We are so appreciative this event is being held to support the vital work of both St Barnabas House and Turning Tides. At Turning Tides, we are seeing increasing numbers of people needing our support. The impact of the pandemic, soaring food and energy bills and government measures coming to an end is forcing more people onto our streets. People coming to our Community Hubs for warmth, safety and support are from all backgrounds: we know only too well how life can spiral into homelessness. This event will not only be an amazing experience for those attending but to know the money raised will help fund such important work undertaken in our community will make it all the more worthwhile.”
