A unique performance of the most famous of all oratorios
Written in 1741, Handel's 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 of Part One for all ages, by partnering with four local schools to prepare art, dance and drama that will be presented alongside the music - all introduced by Mr Handel himself!
The choir will be 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.
Can I get a ticket?
Because of the limitations of space in the church, priority for tickets is being given to families of the children involved, and to member of St John's Church.
Any remaining tickets will be available to the public, via this website nearer to the event.
