Description

Come and sing . . .

St Donats Chorale invites you to an inspiring day with one of the best-loved choral works of all time.

Well-known soprano Jennifer Walker will lead singing workshops that cover the techniques needed for Handel's Messiah (including all those tricky runs), followed by sectional and full rehearsals. The whole day will culminate in a public performance of this magnificent work with a full team of soloists, chamber orchestra, organ and harpsichord.

Jennifer Walker – soprano
Anne Braley – mezzo soprano
Tom Smith – tenor
Gareth Blake – bass
James Bull - organ

Opus 8 Chamber Ensemble

Conducted by Carl Grainger
