Festival of Ideas: Open Rehearsal
‘We are the dreamers of dreams’

We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams …’ Elgar’s setting of O’Shaughnessy’s poem The Music Makers will be sung at this YMS open rehearsal.

Hear the choir rehearse with conductor David Pipe for a Jubilee Concert on Sunday 24 June in Münster, Germany, marking the 50th anniversary of Münster Philharmonischer Chor. The music has been chosen as a tribute to the long-standing partnership of these two large choirs, who first performed together 25 years ago in 1993. This event is a York preview and a chance to hear a run-through of the music, accompanied by piano.

Refreshments will be served afterwards.
