East of England Singers One of the leading chamber choirs in the East Midlands, the East of England Singers have a busy concert schedule performing works across the full choral range.

The choir’s refreshingly dynamic and committed performances have brought both critical and public acclaim.

The singers excelled ..., conveying beautifully the range of moods and the close marrying of text and setting.

Grahame Whitehead - Nottingham Evening Post

John Barker Woodwind finalist in the 1998 BBC Young Musician of the Year, prize-winning saxophonist John Barker made his Wigmore Hall debut in 2011 and is now in wide demand as a concert artist, acclaimed by The Observer as "an astonishingly accomplished saxophonist". Come and hear him play items from his repertoire alongside the major works in our programme.

Michael Overbury First prize winner of the 1982 Manchester International Organ Competition, Michael studied the organ with Gillian Weir whilst a student at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. He has appeared as soloist at the Royal Festival Hall and features on several recordings, including five solo discs. Michael is Director of Music at Worksop Priory, a founder member of Musica Donum Dei and harpsichordist for the chamber trio Continuum.

The Venue

The historic church of St John the Evangelist (1843) was recently extensively refurbished and now provides a comfortable concert venue with good facilities and an excellent acoustic. Refreshments served by members of the choir will be available in the interval. The church is easy to find with plenty of on-street parking close by. It is situated on the left hand side of Mansfield Road in Carrington as you travel away from Nottingham city centre.
