Fri 23 Mar Zimbe! Schools performance


Barnes Primary School comes together with St Paul’s School Junior Choir and Jazz Band, Barnes Community Choir and Rodolfus Choir for this special performance of Zimbe! (translated as Sing Them!) an uplifting celebration of African music for mixed chorus, children’s choir and jazz quintet. Composer Alexander L’Estrange combines traditional songs with infectious accompaniments and vibrant percussion to take us on a whirlwind tour of life in an African village reflecting some of the ways in which music plays a part in everyday life in Africa. It’s a wonderfully simple, joyous realm where music imitates life, and life inspires music.
