TYNDALE Choral Society will be breaking new ground for its summer concert on 2 July. Tyndale has a strong reputation for performing traditional choral music, but this summer the choir will sing a popular African piece, ZImbe! Come Sing the Songs of Africa by Alexander L’Estrange. In a further break with tradition, this concert will also feature the choir of Cam Woodfield School, who will join in the performance of Zimbe!. In order to make this music accessible to a wider audience the concert will be held in Dursley’s Rednock School.

Tyndale’s Musical Director Ben Sawyer says ‘Zimbe! is the perfect piece to get people singing together. It is exciting, moving, entertaining and a wonderful opportunity for Tyndale Choral Society to collaborate with other groups. We are particularly pleased to have children from Cam Woodfield School singing with us, and look forward to hearing them sing a song on their own too. The icing on the cake will be the instrumentalists who are accompanying us, real experts in the rhythmic style of music we will perform in the concert. It’s a treat for the whole family!’

Also on the programme is Chilcott’s A Little Jazz Mass and Ramirez’s Misa Criolla. The concert will be held at 7.30pm on 2 July, Rednock School. Tickets (£10/£2 under 16s) available from choir members or on the door. For more information, please see www.tyndale-choral-society.org or contact Catherine Bennett, Secretary, on 01452 883759.
