Classical Music 5/2/10

If you’re someone who likes to be a team player but finds it difficult to see a way of accessing the musical world of performance, there is an opportunity tomorrow to test run your proclivities.

The Belfast Philharmonic Choir is hosting its fifth Come and Sing Day, offering you a chance to rehearse and perform one of the world’s greatest choral masterpieces with a symphony orchestra and soloists, just for the fun of it.

The orchestra is the Studio Symphony, and if you have a certain degree of practical ability on an orchestral instrument, you may also find it worthwhile joining that group. The masterpiece in question is Verdi’s Requiem, as “Verdi’s latest opera, in church vestments”.

Tomorrow the conductor will be the ever energetic Christopher Bell (pictured). The rehearsal begins tomorrow morning at 11am and continues until 5.30pm. Your friends and admirers can come along at the 7pm performance. It takes place at the Royal Belfast Academical Institution in College Square East.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
