Come And Sing Messiah (part one) for free at St Mary’s, Finedon
Come and join us at St Mary’s, Finedon on Saturday 21st December, 2.30pm rehearsal followed by a 4.30pm performance of Handel’s Messiah (part one) along with three traditional Christmas carols. We have excellent professional soloists coming: soprano – Lauren Hollis, alto – Joanna Arnold, tenor – James Hutchings, and bass – Benjamin Ellis, accompanied again this year by a string ensemble led by Michael Needle, with Ivan Linford on continuo. Jonathan Harris will be conducting.
There is no cost involved; donations at the door welcome. We expect to finish at 5.40pm.
If you would like to sing just let me know that you’ll be coming and remind me which voice part you sing! We are using the Prout edition of Messiah; if you have your own copy, please bring it along but, if not, we will have plenty of copies at church that you can borrow.
Dress code this year is a relaxed ‘fairly smart’. The heating will be on!
I hope you can join us.
