This year’s Sense of the Divine concert is out of this world! Singing music spanning 1000 years, Exultate Singers perform choral works inspired by the universe, the moon, planets and stars. The centrepiece is a performance of Lux aeterna by Ligeti featured in Stanley Kubrick’s iconic film 2001: A Space Odyssey and Vaughan Williams’ wonderful setting of Shakespeare’s words in Serenade to Music, marking the 450th anniversary of the playwright’s birth.
To accompany the wonderfully atmospheric and mesmerizing music, breathtaking images of the night sky will be projected onto the ceiling and balconies of St George’s. Don’t miss this truly cosmic experience.
