The eight-voice A Cappella group, MOSAIC, is returning to St Peter’s Church, Edensor to present a varied programme of part songs, spirituals, sacred polyphony, folk song settings, jazz standards and pop arrangements at 7-30pm on Saturday, June 24th 2017; free entry, donation requested in church. This highly talented group of singers from all corners of the East Midlands is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017, having raised tens of  thousands of pounds for a variety of charities at concerts in Northants, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. The proceeds of the June concert will go towards the cost of mending St Peter’s geriatric guttering!!
The singing friends, who make up MOSAIC, perform for the sheer love of the rich and beautiful repertoire that exists for unaccompanied voices. In their case, they explore a wide variety of pieces in eight parts from the high Renaissance through to the latest wave of contemporary compositions and arrangements. They have been warmly received in the many dozens of concert venues where they have performed. The music critic, Mike Wheeler, reviewed MOSAIC’s recent performance at Derby Cathedral as follows: “The group is impressive equally for its blend, its unanimity and an apparently infinite adaptability”  The summer programme promises to be memorable for its beautiful but also entertaining music.
More details of the group’s activities can be found on their website, including a special film profile, shot in Edensor three years ago, and several Youtube clips.
