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 about one percent of the length of the total work.
Messiah is renowned as one of the greatest musical works ever produced and it wouldn’t be Christmas in Harrogate 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.
This year The Harrogate Choral Society will be joined by soloists Bibi Heal, Soprano; Emma Watkinson, Mezzo Soprano; Luke Sinclair, Tenor; and Stuart Orme, Bass, accompanied by the renowned Manchester Camerata and conducted by the HCS Music Director Andrew Padmore.
