About this event
A unique and sensory experience allowing the audience to roam freely during the performance.
Truro Cathedral Choir is thrilled once again to be joining the outstanding professional orchestral musicians of City of London Sinfonia (CLS) for a performance that is part of CLS’s latest Cathedrals Tour, The Fruit of Silence. The performances will take place in different parts of the cathedral and the audience is encouraged to move around the building for a truly immersive experience. The music is meditative, calm and enveloping—from orchestral music by present-day composers who explore the mystic through their music, such as Arvo Pärt and Dobrinka Tabakova, to ancient melodies for choirs that have resounded in cathedrals across centuries.
The Fruit of Silence Cathedrals Tour is presented in partnership with Friends of Cathedral Music and is supported by the John Ellerman Foundation and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Centuries of Medi tations (Dobrinka Tabakova) is championed by Resonate, a PRS Foundation initiative in partnership with Association of British Orchestras, BBC Radio 3 and Boltini Trust.
