Enjoy the dynamic singing of around 150 local children representing: All Saints, Chase Lane, Harwich Community, Harwich Senior, Mayflower, St. Josephs, Spring Meadows & Two Village schools as they join together for a staged performance of ‘Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo’, a cantata written by Michael Flanders and Joseph Horovitz.
As the title suggests the musical tells the Old Testament story of Noah and the flood through song, using the witty lyrics of Michael Flanders and superb music of Joseph Horovitz tied into our own narration and drama. It promises to be quite a colourful spectacle.
The songs have been put together by all the schools music coordinators under the musical direction of Antony Sanders and John Morgan. Trudi Swettenham and James Martin are leading the musicians with the drama again coordinated by individual schools under the overall direction of Suszan Rudland.
