They are informal, lively and amazingly engaging as the performers and audience share the same space - children are always encouraged to make a lot of noise and to help make the story happen. We guarantee that every show will be fun, really silly and that there will be plenty of colourful puppets and live songs.   Every performance we present different stories featuring the same much loved characters - from Can-Can the beautiful bird to laid back Lion Down and The Thing That Goes Blurgh!   It is a well-rounded all-inclusive show that can be enjoyed by parents too. ***** Remote Goat   Duration: 50 min Age recommendation: 0-7 years   Tickets: £9.50 Book Now: 020 7534 1744 or at      _____________________________________________________________ Saturday 15th December  7:30pm Renaissance Singers Director: Dr. David Allinson Songs of Shepherds and Angels • Morales’s Christmas Mass Cristóbal de Morales based his lush Missa Quaeramus cum pastoribus on an immensely popular popular motet by  Mouton. In reworking the original material he transformed its breezy, taut four-voice textures into larger canvasses of lush, five-part polyphony, dividing the basses throughout to create rich sonorities that culminate in a seven-fold division of forces for the Agnus Dei.   To contrast with the Mass, we sing reduced-texture seasonal motets by Morales, along with works by his greatest Spanish successor, Victoria, and by Victoria’s successor at the Collegio Germanico in Rome, Annibale Stabile. An uplifting evening of festive polyphony that will be perfectly complemented by the mince pies and mulled wine available at the interval! Tickets: In Advance to Wednesday 12th December: £12/ £10 (concessions) Thereafter: £14/ £12 (concessions)      _____________________________________________________________ Thursday 20th December  7:30pm Dorian Chamber Orchestra Musical Director: Samuel Huston Music by the Viennese Masters and Beyond  D. Gilchrist:  Fantasy on a theme by Anton Webern J. Haydn: Symphony No. 6 – Le Matin F. Schubert: Symphony No. 5 Dorian Chamber Orchestra’s 2018-19 concert series continues with a programme of music by the Viennese Masters and beyond. The concert begins with a new work by Daniel Gilchrist drawing on the language of the Second Viennese School and synthesising it into his own style. This forms the perfect contrast to a concert otherwise dominated by works by two of the composers that have come to epitomise what we now think of as a First Viennese School. Joseph Haydn's Symphony No. 6 shows the continuing legacy of the concerto grosso style on Haydn's early symphonies, with virtuosic writing for soloists across the orchestra. Schubert's Symphony No. 5  is a work written as an homage to an earlier age. The reduced scoring mimics that of the Haydn work and this is a largely pastoral and amicable piece of music written in a post-Mozartean style. Especially notable across both of these symphonies is the writing for the woodwind, and especially flute, which is prominent throughout. Tickets: £12, £6 on the door £10, £5 in advance from:      _____________________________________________________________
