POLYPHONY DOWN THE PUB
Monday 13 April
7pm at The Horse & Stables, 122-124 Westminster Bridge Road;
free
Experimental singing/socialising event - a pub 'jam' session
but instead of playing folk music or jazz, people turn up to
sing a cappella masterpieces from the 16th century by
Palestrina, Victoria and others. No audition, no rehearsal,
no performance; just people in a pub making music. Anyone
who can read music and wants to take part should download
the sheet music from the PDtP website; anyone who doesn't
read music is still welcome to come along and listen.
