This is a very exciting cultural exchange between Cambridge and Dubai and Amman, which has been entirely self financed by the Choir of Sidney Sussex College in the University of Cambridge. We will be working with young singers in Jordan, working with Arabic musicians and learning Arabic songs while offering our own music cultivated in the chapels of Cambridge its choral tradition that expends back some five centuries. We have devised a project (a 'Choral Play' called 'Xavier and Aisha's Amazing Choral Adventure')  to introduce the children of Dubai to high quality choral music through a production that involves a range of different styles performed to a high standard linked by a delightful fairy tale style story. We will also be offering concerts of music spanning four centuries, including music by Gibbons, Lassus,  Gjeilo, Marsh and Whitacre.
