Serenade posterSerenade - A 7pm concert in Pershore Abbey.

We start a new Oriels season with a varied programme of sacred and secular music, which we are pleased to perform in this wonderful church. Pershore Abbey is a glorious old remnant of a mediaeval Benedictine monastery and has a history stretching back a thousand years or more.

Our concert features music by Roxanna Panufnik, Alissa Firsova, Eric Whitacre and Bob Chilcott. We are particularly pleased to be giving the world premiere of Songs of Farewell by Matthew Coleridge.

Tickets cost £12 in advance and are free for students. They are available online via Ticket Tailor or from Blue, 19 Broad Street, Pershore. Tickets cost £15 if you buy them on the door, so please do take advantage of our advance sales.

Please note the slightly early start time.
