Bob Chilcott conductor

Jack Apperley conductor

Welcome internationally renowned conductor, composer, and singer Bob Chilcott to his new role as Principal Conductor of Birmingham University Singers in this special concert. Juxtapose Nordic and French works with music closer to home as the Advent and Christmas season draws near. Experience fresh falling snow, ethereal northern lights, and indigenous folk music from the Arctic Circle with Nordic works by Bo Holton, Ola Gjeilo, and Sandström. Anticipate the coming of Christmas with dramatic urgency in Byrd’s vibrant motet Vigilate. Be dazzled by an array of colours, textures and deep-felt spirituality in music by Caplet, and embrace the return of spring rebirth, nature and celebration in Bob Chilcott’s own music.
