Marches Choir presents Haydn’s Creation
The Marches Choir, conducted by Alistair Auld, will present Haydn's Creation. The singers in the 70-strong chorus will be joined by 20 others from Cardigan in West Wales, a full Orchestra and three professional soloists - Caroline Clarke (Soprano), Matthew Sandy (Tenor) and Nicholas Morris (Baritone).
It’s hard to imagine a choral work more life-affirming than Haydn’s Creation - a vision of the universe that embraces both earthworms and angels, with music that is uplifting throughout.
Undoubtedly the most famous chorus from Creation is The Heavens Are Telling, a much-loved setting of Psalm 19, but the whole work is full of wonderful choruses, duets, trios and solos, presented in a seamless outpouring of musical inspiration.
The concert also features Beethoven's Hallelujah Chorus from the Mount of Olives, an arresting tribute to Handel’s chorus of the same name - the piece will celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth, which falls in 2020.
7.30pm. Tickets (£12, children and students free) are available by calling 01588 650448 or online via www.ticketsource.co.uk, and can also be purchased from choir members or on the night.
