Children’s Drama Workshop   Drama Session 2

with Simon Allison

Drama Express (AKA Simon Allison) is an interactive, inclusive and inventive workshop programme for young people of all abilities. With a focus on fun, a series of improvisation games enable the session to start with a relaxed and welcoming theme. Developing confidence through these initial games young people are encouraged to produce a short performance using a range of tactile and sensory props. The end result will give all those taking part a huge sense of achievement with a new set of friends

Cantemus                          urc_int1

A choir made up of enthusiastic singers from all across Pembrokeshire and beyond will delight you with their renditions of two favourite musical works: The Armed Man by Carl Jenkins and The Requiem by Fauré.

The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins was subtitled “A Mass for Peace” It was an anti-war protest dedicated to the victims of the fighting in Kosovo. It’s structure follows that of the Catholic Mass. Carl Jenkins combines this with other sources possibly including a 15th century folksong “L’Homme Armé” with words taken from Tennyson and Kipling among others. Carl Jenkins’ reputation as a composer and conductor is internationally recognised. The première of The Armed Man in the year 2000 took place in the Royal Albert Hall with Julian Lloyd-Webber as cello soloist and our own Grant Llewellyn conducting.

Requiem in D Minor Op48 by Gabriel Fauré is a shortened version of the Catholic Mass for the Dead in Latin. First performed in Paris in La Madeleine in 1888 for a funeral mass, it is in seven movements and the Dies Irae is replaced by the hauntingly beautiful Pie Jesu. Fauré himself said of it “Everything I managed to entertain by way of religious illusion I put into my Requiem, which moreover is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest”

Those interested in joining the choir may ring 01646 661397 for further information.
