Orlando Chamber Choir
Will Dawes, director

Orlando Chamber Choir takes you on a mythical journey through the lands of legend. Mermaids will lead the way to fair isles with singing nymphs, and we'll enter deep dark woods where fauns and satyrs live - and where Robin Hood can be glimpsed amidst the green. With choral music by the Renaissance greats and by two living legends, the Sibyls predict an exciting and extraordinary concert! An interval picnic will magically materialise and you may even hear the sound of a unicorn...
