Details of our 2017 Come and Sing Day will follow in due course, in the meantime please look at the news article from the 2016 John Rutter Day.

Britain’s leading choral composer and conductor, John Rutter CBE, returns to Northampton!

John invites you to sing a mixture of choral music, old and new, familiar and unfamiliar, including his new work The Gift of Life, and a few surprises.

He started composing in his teens (alongside his classmate Sir John Tavener) and his work includes choral, orchestral and instrumental pieces, a piano concerto, two children’s operas, music for television, and specialist writing for such groups as the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble and the King’s Singers. He has written for the Queen's Golden Jubilee in St Paul's Cathedral, and the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

He collaborated with Sir David Willcocks on the four-volume series Carols for Choirs, an indispensable compendium for choristers around the world, and he has written several longer-form works that have become popular favourites, including his Gloria, Magnificat, and Requiem.

For many choirs, of course, no Christmas is complete without a Rutter carol!

Copies will be provided and also available for sale, as will recordings of all of John’s most popular works (and he will, of course, be on hand to sign them!). Enthusiastic singers of all levels are welcome to a hugely enjoyable day with this inspirational teacher.

Booking is now open. You can download a flyer and booking form by clicking the 'Download Ticket Order Form' button on the right. The hall is a large one but tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and we expect that this exciting day will be very popular.
