Programme

Norman COCKER Chetham’s Symphony
Gerald LITTLEWOOD Psalm No. 150
SAINT-SAËNS The Carnival of the Animals

On 6 December 1969, Chetham’s Intermediate Orchestra performed The Carnival of the Animals. Fifty years later we’re doing it again, along with a selection of carols and instrumental works from Chetham’s Christmasses through the ages. Former students Roger Wright – now Chief Executive of Aldeburgh Music, and former Director of the BBC Proms – and his brother Simon Wright, conductor, organist and Musical Director of the Britten Singers – lead an orchestra of students past and present in a festive journey through Chetham’s history, and a celebration of those visionaries who created this unique musical community half a century ago.
