Saturday 9th November at 7.45 in St Swithun’s Church, Yateley
In the run up to the season of Advent, YCS performs George Frederick Handel’s Messiah, the colourful story about the coming of Jesus. This mighty oratorio stands apart in its genre as a forthright and multi-textured piece, known to many and loved by all who hear it.
Handel’s Messiah is as reassuringly familiar as it is deceptively insightful; every performance offers something new and entrancing whilst re-charming old hands with their favourite musical moments. Graceful dances like And the glory of the Lord are juxtaposed with psychological torments (He was despised), and unified in tuneful harmony in the famous Hallelujah chorus.
Yateley Choral Society will be joined by four professional soloists and full orchestra for a lively performance of this famous work. This is a concert not to be missed!
