Friday 28 November 7.30pm English Chamber Orchestra Tallis Chamber Choir
Conductor Roy Goodman
Handel The Messiah
It is now some years since we had a performance of Handel’s masterpiece The Messiah in our series. Ever since this iconic work was first performed in Dublin in 1742, it has stood as the centrepiece of the English Choral tradition. We are very pleased to have the English Chamber Orchestra here to perform this great work under Roy Goodman who specialises in the music of Handel. He will be joined by the Tallis Chamber Choir and a distinguished line-up of soloists in what we are sure will be one of the highlights of the season.
Pre-concert talk 6.15pm – 7.00pm Kennet Room, Civic Offices (FREE)
