There are many works of classical music that are known to the general public. The Hallelujah chorus from Handel’s Messiah is possibly one of the most famous pieces of music ever written, even though it comprises only a small section of the complete work.
Messiah is known as one of the greatest musical works ever produced and it wouldn’t be Christmas without the opportunity to hear this great Oratorio – a form of music that contains dramatic lyrics like an opera, but which is staged as a concert without sets or acting.
Harrogate Choral Society will be joined by soloists Bibi Heal, Soprano; Beth Mackay, Mezzo Soprano; James Micklethwaite, Tenor; and Phil Wilcox, Bass. We will be accompanied by the Amici Ensemble and conducted by the HCS Music Director Andrew Padmore.
