BIEBER AND BRITTEN IN OPENING CONCERT 

Vocal ensemble VOCES8 is to open the widely acclaimed Repton Concerts Society programme for 2017/18, with a performance to include Britten’s Choral Dances, arrangements of folk songs including O Waly Waly and contemporary arrangements of pieces by Justin Bieber and Duke Ellington. 
 
The concert, which will feature Repton School’s Chamber Choir, opens the series of nine performances, which brings internationally-renowned musicians of all styles and backgrounds into the intimate venue of Repton’s Music School. It takes place on Wednesday, September 20, starting at 7.45pm. 
 
Put together by Artistic Director Oliver Walker, the 2017 – 18 Concert Series has something to suit all musical tastes; from jazz to classical, flamenco festivities to a brass quartet. 
 
Often the visiting musicians will work with Repton School pupils during the afternoon in an informal masterclass setting, before performing themselves in the evening. This year also sees Repton School pupils feature in three of the concerts. 
 
Commenting on the programme, Oliver Walker said: “It has been a huge privilege and a great joy to put the series together. I am delighted with the outcome.  
 
“I am particularly pleased to continue the Series’ long tradition of providing a platform for young, upand-coming artists and groups.  
 
“To be able to see performers of this calibre outside of the traditional venues is exceptional. We have an outstanding year ahead!” 
 
A season ticket covering all nine concerts costs £75, with tickets for individual performances priced at £13.50 each (concessions £10.50). For further details and tickets, contact Oliver Walker by email music@repton.org.uk or telephone (01283) 559227.
