The combined choirs of St. Peter’s, Lewes (T.J. Thomas, director) and Immanuel on the Green, New Castle (Jack Burnam, director) have been invited to serve as choir-in-residence at Ely Cathedral from August 13 to 19, 2018. It has become a tradition of British cathedrals to audition and extend invitations for American choirs to sing week-long residencies during the time when the cathedral’s own choir is on holiday. Over the next year our combined choirs will meet for quarterly rehearsals and services preparing the repertoire necessary to sing a week of daily services at Ely Cathedral. Please join us for Evensong on August 5, 2018 as the choirs sing their final service in Lewes before departing for England.
