Some of you will undoubtedly recognise the rich beauty of Milana’s voice from our Summer concert of Carmina Burana and we are delighted to welcome her back to sing Mozart’s Requiem with us on 14th October. We are particularly excited about Milana’s beautiful soprano solo in the “Dies Irae” section. This haunting and dramatic aria, “Tuba Mirum,” is known for its soaring melodies that depict the Day of Judgment. Milana is a magnificent artist who sings with all her soul and we cannot wait!

🗓 Saturday 14th October 2023, 7.30pm

📍 St Mary’s Church, Godmanchester

🎟 £15 / £5 On the door or on our website
