The Courtyard hosts ‘Henry V – A Shakespeare Scenario’

Members of Cantabile will be amongst the Chorus of this first for Hereford and the Courtyard.

This will be the first time that Chetham’s School of Music have come to Hereford. The concert, together with the two days of workshops with local schools leading up to it, is a collaboration with The Courtyard and Herefordshire Music Education Hub.

The programme will include the chamber arrangement, by Edward Watson, of William Walton’s Henry V – A Shakepeare Scenario.

Conductor: Stephen Threlfall

Narrator: David Durant

It will also include a world premiere of a new work by a Chetham’s student which was inspired by the text of Henry V. The solo and duo performances will be given by outstanding Chetham’s students.

Local generosity from Claridge Nursing Homes and The Friends of Herefordshire Museum and Arts have provided the funding.
