Euro fever comes to Bristol as Exultate Singers presents a late afternoon European song concert of sacred and secular choral music.
Experience a wide variety of languages, sounds and musical flavours in styles from the 16th century to the present day as the choir reveals how vividly each country’s national identity and traditions are expressed in its choral music.
Come and hear beautiful songs and scintillating choral pieces from Albania, Austria, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Ukraine and, of course, Australia!
Hello, this is Bristol calling! At the end the audience will be invited to award their douze points to their favourite piece which the choir will perform again as an encore.
