Community Song Cycle “Seven Mercies” in Pickering 21 May

Saturday 21 May 2022, 4pm, Pickering Parish Church.

Seven Mercies is a Community Song Cycle by composer Joseph Howard and writer Emma Harding, inspired by the famous murals of Pickering Church. An introductory talk on the murals will be given by Slingsby’s very own Dr Kate Giles (University of York).

A celebration of local heritage and local talent, it is about countering difficult times through small acts of kindness and selflessness, taking the form of a journey through hardship into light.

It is presented in association with the Richard Shephard Music Foundation, the charity which aims to help more children experience music in classrooms, and at events, across the region. The Foundation launched a partnership with Slingsby Community Primary School at the start of this year.

The headline musicians are acclaimed mezzo-soprano Kathryn Rudge and Ryedale Festival’s Artistic Director and renowned pianist Christopher Glynn.

Tickets: £10, £5 (UNDER 18). www.ryedalefestival.com
