Event description

Description

The Leith Hill Musical Festival is proud to present what could be your 'once in a lifetime' opportunity to sing in this rarely performed masterpiece with a top conductor, professional orchestra and soloists. Jonathan Willcocks will conduct the internationally-acclaimed baroque orchestra Canzona, with rising stars of the concert platform as soloists and a 240-strong amateur choir expertly trained by our chorus master Ben Costello.

There will be 9 rehearsals on Saturdays or Sundays starting on 11 January and culminating in the performance at the Dorking Halls on the evening of Sunday 8 March 2020. The first rehearsal is in Reigate, the others in Dorking, and a full schedule of places, dates and times is on our website here. You will be expected to attend most of these rehearsals and must attend the last two.

Tickets are available to sing in any of the 8 parts, but as rehearsals progress some singers may be asked to switch between 1st and 2nd choirs to achieve an appropriate balance.

We will be singing in Latin from the traditional 'Old Novello' edition of the score and you can either bring your own copy or hire one. Alternative scores will not be acceptable.

A fee of £50 gives you Festival Membership for a full year comprising principally this series of rehearsals and concert, but you will also have access to other Festival events. Many of the singers for the Bach B Minor Mass will come from one of our member choirs, but ALL SINGERS ARE WELCOME. Music hire costs an additional £5.

Please select either a £55 ticket (including score hire) or £50 ticket (BYO score).

REDUCED PRICES for Under 18's and students £30 or £25.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

For St Mary's Church REIGATE

St Mary's is about a 15 minute walk from Reigate Station.

For cars, there is parking at the rear of Reigate Grammar School. The entrance can be found on the A25 at the main reception to the school. From there you can exit through the back of the car park area and take a short walk to the Church. Long term car parks are located about a 10 minute walk from the church - Bell Street Car Park and Bankcroft Road Multi Storey car park.

DORKING venues

All are reachable by train to Dorking or Dorking Deepdene. The Dorking Halls and United Reformed Church are about 10-15 minutes walk; the Priory School is further but is served by buses 22, 32, 93 & 465 from the stations to Townfield Court (stop S) on South Street, leaving only a short walk.

For cars, there are several large car parks in the town (behind the Halls is best for that rehearsal and the performance, or behind Marks & Spencer for the URC); but the Priory School has its own large and free car park.

What can I bring into the event?

Of all the rehearsal venues, only Dorking Halls (7 March) has catering facilities. At the other venues you will need to bring your own refreshments. Otherwise, just your score!

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

The Organiser is Mandy Begg - email secretary@lhmf.org.uk

What's the refund policy?

Our normal policy is no refunds, but if something untoward occurs please contact Mandy.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Your ticket is required for the first rehearsal and to obtain your score, if hired. There will be sign-in sheets thereafter.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

No. Each singer becomes a personal 'independent singer' member of the Leith Hill MusicalFestival.

What happens if a rehearsal is cancelled?

If a decision is taken to cancel a rehearsal because of bad weather, this will be notified on the LHMF website.

When can I buy tickets for the concert?

Tickets for the concert on Sunday 8 March will be sold on Eventbrite from 18 November.
