The concert features works by contemporary composers Derri Joseph Lewis, Alex Groves, and Mari Esabel Valverde, who all share fresh perspectives on LGBTQ+ lives and lovers.
Come celebrate love, loving and being loved. After all, love is all you need.
This concert is BSL interpreted by leading British Sign Language interpreter of classical music, Paul Whittaker OBE
Kantos Chamber Choir was founded in 2015 by Ellie Slorach. The choir comprises the top choral singers across the north who have begun or are about to begin their professional careers. Kantos has rapidly risen to the forefront of choral singing in Manchester and the north-west.
The choir is committed to ensuring choral music is accessible to a wider, more diverse audience. Its events are for keen classical music fans and brand new audience members alike. Kantos aims to shake up the tradition of choral music and perform at a professional level in the north, where there are currently no full-time professional chamber choirs.
Paul Whittaker is an inspirational speaker, musician, performer and workshop leader who is profoundly deaf. A pianist and organist, he has a music degree from Wadham College, Oxford, a postgraduate performance diploma from the RNCM and holds ALCM and ARCO diplomas.
For thirty years Paul has been entertaining and educating people about music and deafness across the UK and beyond, at schools and colleges, conferences and theatres, courses and training events. More recently he has focused mainly on Signed Song and BSL access to classical music.
Under 30s/Full-time students/unwaged: £11
