‘Sounds from the Cathedral' is a joint project between Stavanger Symphony Orchestra and Stavanger2008, the European Capital of Culture organization for Stavanger. The joint choir and orchestra will perform a concert in London on 5 February.
'Sounds from the Cathedral', which was launched with a concert in Stavanger Cathedral on 14 January, consists of freelance musicians from different countries, as well as musicians from Stavanger Symphony Orchestra. The number of musicians will vary with each production, as none of them are permanent members of the ensemble, except the Music Director, Finnish baroque violinist Sirkka-Liisa Kaakinen-Pilch.
As part of their European tour, the church music ensemble will play a concert at St. Giles Cripplegate in London. The tour programme, ‘Winds and Voices’, consists of church music from 17th and 18th century, as well as contemporary church music and some new commissions.
