Lady Chapel

Marking the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on 22 April and the Global Earth Day Network, a specially designed programme will be performed by the Stroud Fringe Choir for the beautiful acoustics of the Cathedral’s Lady Chapel. This one of a kind concert will create a restorative atmosphere for reflection in the light of the climate crisis.

The repertoire will include a world premiere of a set of specially written choral pieces by composer Emily Hall with lyrics by Toby Litt and other songs written by Stroud musicians including Emily Barker and Blythe Pepino, Melanie Golding and Sophie Sterckx. Stroud Fringe Choir is a choir collective made up of composers, singer-songwriters, artists and high -standard adventurous amateurs.

The George Choir - directed by experienced NVN practitioner Eleanor Holliday - are a community choir based the Forest of Dean who have been singing together for 15 years. They contribute to the Wye River Valley Festival, Bristol Unaccompanied Adults, and many local charity events. This evening they will sing a beautiful World Folk repertoire, reflecting different cultural responses to Humanity's place in Nature.

Tickets will be available at £7 per person with all profits being donated to Earth Day and can be booked via Eventbrite
