Saturday 7 December 2019 - Ipswich
St John's Church, Cauldwell Hall Road
A joint event with Cantus Firmus Trust and St Edmundsbury Cathedral's InHarmony project
A unique performance of the first part of the most famous of all oratorios, Handel's Messiah.
Written in 1741, Messiah has been at the forefront of choral repertoire ever since, and its popualrity continues. But it is usually only experienced by adults. We aim to present a performance for all ages, by partnering with local schools to prepare art, dance and drama that will be presented alongside the music - all introduced by Mr Handel himself!
The choir will accompanied by an orchestra of professional musicians, and the performance ends with a special version of the Hallelujah Chorus, in which children join with the adult choir.
More details will be available here soon.
