Three of the premier amateur choirs of Nottinghamshire, plus the much acclaimed Djanogly Community Orchestra, will provide one of the undoubted highlights of Nottinghamshire’s 2019 choral music year on Saturday 18th May at 7 pm.
The Ruddington & District Choral Society will join with the Burton Joyce Choral Society and the Nottingham Hospitals’ Choir to perform one of the world’s greatest and most-loved choral works: Mendelssohn’s mighty oratorio “Elijah” at St Mary’s Church in the Lace Market
Sponsored by the Co-op Community Fund, this ever-popular oratorio, which depicts events in the life of the Old Testament prophet Elijah, contains some of the most glorious, profound, moving and well known music in the entire choral repertoire.
The Choir and Orchestra, under the musical direction of Paul Hayward, will be joined by organist Michael Overbury and soloists Jane Harwood, Simon Lumby and Ossian Huskington. The concert promises to be not only a sell out but a night to remember for both musicians and audience.
Tickets cost £10 and can be obtained from Windblowers on Derby Road or from choir members by calling 0115 921 1451, 07891 4943 77 or 0115 931 2803.
