Scotland’s festival of vocal and choral music, St Andrews Voices, will feature two of Jonathan Harvey’s pieces at one of its concerts this year. On Friday 24th October 2014 at 10pm, a late-night, candlelit concert entitled ‘Candlelit Angels’ will take place at St Leonard’s Chapel at the University of St Andrews.
The Marion Consort, “one of the UK’s best young vocal ensembles’, will perform Jonathan’s compositions, ‘The Angels’ and ‘The Annunciation’, announced on the festival website as “Scottish premieres” of the pieces. The conductor is Rory McCleery.
The evening promises to be a very special performance, set against the backdrop of “the beautiful historic town of St Andrews”.
The festival is also exhibiting Jila Peacock’s 7Heavens, seven prints inspired by Jonathan’s music, in conjunction with the concert as well as a sound installation composed by local secondary school pupils who are using Jonathan’s music and Jila’s artwork as their inspiration. The exhibition will be at the Byre Theatre, St Andrews and open to the public from 10th October and throughout the festival.
