May 18th 2024 – Come & Sing – Great American Songbook

An invitation to all enthusiastic amateur singers to join the choir for a Saturday afternoon session in Sunderland Minster from 2.00 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. to explore some of David Murray’s own settings for sopranos, altos, tenors and basses of the great popular songs from America (e.g. by Gershwin, Jerome Kern and the Carpenters) and indeed from the UK (Lennon & McCartney, Noel Coward), which emerged as our popular culture evolved in the latter part of the twentieth century.

The session will be led by David Murray, our Musical Director, and Anne Marie Owens, our President and one of Britain’s leading mezzo-sopranos. The charge for non-members of the choir is £10, to include score hire, and you can book a place by emailing for further details and application form.
