A cappella sounds for a night of intriguing music

A concert of a capella music from six centuries is being performed in Harborough next Saturday, March 21.

Entitled A Joyful Sound, the concert will feature the eight voices of members from the Mosaic music group performing a mixture of folk, spiritual, classical, modern, jazz and pop songs. It is being held at Market Harborough Baptist Church in Coventry Road at 7.30pm.

Jeremy Leaman, who is one of the singers, said: “The driving principle of Mosaic is the joy of singing beautiful music together unaccompanied, exploring new and exciting pieces and communicating that joy and excitement to our audiences.”

The group of eight trained and experienced singers, who have active musical lives as members of other ensembles or as soloists, perform together for about eight concerts a year in the East Midlands.

Tickets cost £8 for adults or £4 for school-age youngsters, and are available from MH Music, in St Mary’s Road, or the New Horizons coffee shop in Manor Walk.

Proceeds from the concert will be going towards the baptist church’s redevelopment project.
