About KoolGigs

Following a successful pilot concert in April 2016, KoolGigs are returning to present a new series of interactive family concerts at St James the Greater, running from October to March. An off-shoot of the popular BabyGigs series, these concerts are aimed at the whole family and also feature young, local performers; however the emphasis is still on a relaxed atmosphere that focuses on children.

Founder Eleanor Hodgkinson is keen to bring classical music to everyone, in an enjoyable way as possible. The concerts are given by some of the UK's leading professional musicians, all highly experienced in performing to a wide age range: expect audience participation, games, dancing and much more... or just come along and listen!

VIVALDI AND FAURÉ CONCERT

For their Autumn 2016 concert, The City of Leicester Singers have chosen popular contrasting works by Vivaldi and Fauré.

The two main works to be performed are Vivaldi;s Gloria and Fauré's Requiem. The Gloria in D Major is Vivaldi's best-known sacred composition and was written around 1713 during his employment at the Ospedale della Pietà, one of four Venetian orphanages for girls. The Requiem was written in 1888 shortly after the death of Fauré's own mother. It is a tender rather than grief-stricken work, and offers what Fauré called "an aspiration to the bliss of the beyond".

Complementing these two major works are Handel's anthem "The King shall rejoice", written for the actual crowning of King George II in 1727, and one of the four coronation anthems; and "The Beatitudes", written in 1990 by the contemporary Estonian composer Arvo Pärt.
