If you have a passion for singing, you won't want to miss Portsmouth Cathedral's 'Come and Sing' event, where you can join a community of singers across all ages and levels, within a truly wonderful setting.

Join composer and conductor Philip Stopford and the Cathedral Choir for Choral Evensong in the magnificent surroundings of Portsmouth Cathedral, with its splendid architecture and amazing acoustics. Philip will take an afternoon of rehearsals and conduct the service to include his own pieces 'Do Not Be Afraid', 'O How Glorious' and the UK premiere of the 'St Stephen Evening Canticles' (Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis) commissioned by St Stephen Presbyterian Church, Fort Worth, Texas in memory of Peter Mark Scott.

You will enjoy singing new pieces, revisiting a Stopford classic alongside the beautiful Smith Responses, meeting with your choral friends and having fun with others. Music will be available in advance of the day should you wish to do some private practice. The schedule for the day is as follows:
2:30pm - Arrival and registration
3:00pm - Rehearsal in Song Room
4:15pm - Break - tea and biscuits
4:45pm - Rehearsal in Quire (with Cathedral Choir)
5:30pm - Break
5:45pm - Choral Evensong Service

Whether you are an experienced singer or a beginner, you are welcome to join these rewarding and enjoyable events.
