For the Pimlott Foundation, this concert brings together musicians from a variety of backgrounds. Richard Moore (Polydorus / Le Pere) and Catrin Pryce-Jones (Marie) have been sponsored by the Pimlott Foundation. Returning to join us is Dominic Sedgwick, (Joseph). We also welcome Zachary Kleanthous (Centurion), Jerome Knox (Herod) and Thomas Atkins (Narrator). Choir members are drawn from local choral societies, Pimlott Foundation Family Choir (and keen singers!), under the directorship of our associate conductor Chris Borrett.
The Janus Ensemble was founded in January 2015 by Charlotte Amherst and its two resident conductors Michael Coleby and Davide Levi. Led by violinist Venetia Jollands, the orchestra brings together aspiring young professional musicians at the outset of their careers, and is ‘establishing itself as a vibrant addition to London concert life’.
This concert has been funded by Arts Council, D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, The Draper’s Company and the Jerome Booth Charitable Fund (through Essex Community Foundation).
