Scunthorpe & District Choral Society - Coronation Concert

Scunthorpe & District Choral Society - Coronation Concert

Join us for an evening of musical delight, featuring Handel's Coronation Anthems, as well as some additional music by Handel.

Handel's first commission as a newly naturalised British subject was to write the music for the coronation of George II and Queen Caroline which took place on 11 October 1727. Within the coronation ceremonies Let thy hand be strengthened was played first, then Zadok the Priest, then The King shall rejoice, and finally My heart is Inditing at the coronation of the Queen.

Taking place just a few weeks before the coronation of King Charles III, this concert will illustrate some of the musical history behind an event many of us have never seen before.
Concert starts 7.30pm
