Amici present a lively programme of a cappella music drawn from all periods between the Renaissance and the twenty-first century.
Amici is “Suffolk’s friendliest a cappella choir”, formed in 2006 by our present director, Adrian Knott. We have performed extensively across East Anglia and have also been on concert tours to France, Belgium, Germany, and the Czech Republic over the past few years. Our repertoire is broadly based, stretching from the late-medieval period to the twenty-first century, and encompassing a wide variety of styles, but there is a particular focus on the madrigals and sacred music of the Renaissance.
£7 adults, under 18s free. Tickets available online, or from Adrian Knott on 01379 669320.
