For its summer concert, The Open University Choir presents a miscellany of short pieces, unaccompanied and piano-accompanied, for men’s, women’s and mixed voices. The music travels from the sixteenth-century to the present day, and has Open University connections, including the first performance of Stephen Potter's 'Songs of Parting'. Along the way the choir presents songs by Stanford, Elgar, American composer Amy Beach and others. Themes of love and parting predominate, with some naughty nautical diversions.

The concert will take place on 27 June from 1pm–2pm in the Hub Theatre on The Open University's Walton Hall campus.

Admission is free and open to all, and includes a printed programme. The venue is accessible and there is free parking on the campus. Tickets for the concert can be booked in advance via Eventbrite at:
