Messiah from ScratchTue 19 Dec
Come and Sing! Messiah
Led by a renowned conductor (to be announced), the celebrated City of London Sinfonia, and an amazing line-up of soloists including internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Yvonne Howard, you will have the opportunity to join us for the performance as part of the chorus, singing from the auditorium. Of course, we welcome all audience members who would prefer to watch rather than join the chorus!
Please take your seats by 6:45pm for a 7pm start. The conductor, soloists and orchestra will lead from the stage, with the audience seated in the auditorium by vocal part (soprano, alto, tenor, bass).
If you are coming as part of a choir (or any other group) and would like to be seated together with your other choir members rather than separated by voice part, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The total running time will be two hours, including a 20-minute interval.
Please note that you will have to bring your own vocal score. We will be using the Watkin Shaw edition which is published by Novello (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Handel-Messiah-New-Novello-Choral/dp/B000OFHFAY), but other editions (which have different page numbers) will also work, so if you own a different version, feel free to use it. The Novello vocal score is available electronically for subscribers to Nkoda.com.
