Wrenathon: A Vocal Marathon
24 Jun 2023
Saturday 24th June 2023, 12noon-8pm
An 8-hour vocal music marathon featuring hundreds of singers from over ten community choirs in over ten city churches.
With gospel, a cappella, pop, immersive choral theatre, global and folk song, classical choral music and featuring young vocalists and MCs, this vocal music marathon brings together singers of all styles to showcase the breadth of community singing today.
With musical programs inspired by Wren’s architecture – celebrating the light and spaces he created; his contemporaries; and responding to themes of renewal, rebuilding and regeneration, all as relevant today’s post-pandemic world as it was after the Great Fire of London.
Choirs include the London Chinese Philharmonic Choir, SOUND, Finsbury Park Singers, Sing Tower Hamlets, and more to be announced.
Church venues include St Michael Cornhill, St Stephen’s Walbrook, St Vedast-alias-Foster, St James Garlickhythe, St Katherine Cree, Holy St Sepulchre and St Magnus the Martyr.
All performances and venues are relaxed environments. This means that we have a relaxed attitude to noise and movement throughout the Wrenathon: A Vocal Marathon, and people are free to come-and-go as they choose.
