London Gay Men’s Chorus take part in the Wren Choral Marathon
St. Michael Paternoster Royal, The Mission to Seafarers, College Hill, London, EC4R 2RL
The City of London is unique in having such a large and wonderful body of churches produced by a single architect – Sir Christopher Wren. The Choral Marathon gives you the chance to hear concerts by 17 different choirs in 17 Wren churches in a single day, starting at 8am and concluding with a midnight Vespers; a fantastic opportunity to spend time indulging in great architecture and wonderful music in as many Wren churches as you can manage in a day.
The concerts will feature a wide array of ensembles including professional, amateur and children’s choirs, performing a broad range of musical styles – medieval, classical, contemporary, gospel and jazz. The performances will each last 45 minutes, with 15 minutes given for you to travel to the next venue.
The London Gay Men’s Chorus will be putting on an eclectic show from tunes such as Beyoncé’s ‘Single Ladies’ to ‘Come the Day’ to ‘The Way Old Friends Do’. In such a beautiful church, the harmonies will float effortlessly around such a gorgeous space. Tickets are free so all you have to do is turn up.
