Cambridge Edition: CYCLE OF SONGS

Written by Jennifer Shelton on 08 May 2014 for the Cambridge Edition.

If you're in town this Sunday, make sure to take a detour past Great St Mary's Church. On 11 May, choirs from across Cambridge will be meeting for a song-filled celebration at Great St Mary's to launch the Cycle Of Songs project, leading up to the main musical event on 7 July to coincide with the visit of le Tour to Cambridge.

Choirs attending include the Addenbrooke's Hospital Choir, Dowsing Sound Collective and Chela the Cambridge Georgian Choir. The church doors will be thrown open to entice the public to pop in and hear the music, and there's a chance to sign up on the day to join a special open-to-all choir that will rehearse in June and perform as part of Cycle of Songs in July.

It takes place from 2-4pm. There will be refreshments on offer and a live band performing afterwards.

Sam Hayes, Director of Music at Great St Mary’s, says: “I’m excited that we will be hosting musicians and singers from such a wide variety of choirs and groups for the Cycle of Songs launch, which will underline the long tradition of music and singing here in the heart of Cambridge.”

For further information on how you can get involved in the Cycle of Songs project as a performer or to volunteer as a steward, a first aider, or as a production intern at the project’s summer events go online or email
