Choral society set to serenade the season

Music by Haydn, Bach, Purcell and Handel will be performed by Halifax Choral Society at a Spring Concert at the Victoria Theatre, Halifax, on Sunday, April 19.

The main item on the programme will be Haydn’s Nelson Mass, a favourite with members of the choir and best described as ‘a really good sing’. The choir’s conductor John Pryce-Jones has assembled a varied and stirring programme of music to go with it.

Also being performed are the first movement of Bach’s Wachet Auf, Handel’s My Heart is Inditing, written for the coronation of George II and Queen Caroline, and, by complete contrast, Purcell’s Trumpet Concerto which will give members of the North of England Classical orchestra a chance to show off their skills.

The soloists will be Catrin Pryce-Jones, Claire Pascoe, Dominic Barberi and Nicholas Watts.

The concert starts at 4pm and tickets are on 01422 351158.
