Thank you for your continued support of Cantoris.
Cantoris is proud to present the glorious Messiah by George Frideric Handel.
Although the Messiah is now a musical rite of the Christmas holiday season, it was originally an Easter offering. Composed in 24 days from August to September 1741, the composition was completed in 24 days, and premiered in Dublin, Ireland on April 13, 1742.
For many amateur choirs, performing the Messiah is often the high point of the year, usually as part of their Christmas programme or year-end performance. Cantoris has decided to go back to it's (Messiah) roots and perform it around the Easter period.
Cantoris will be joined by soloists Michaela Cadwgan, Jennifer Huckle, Lila LJ Crichton and David Morriss.
Ticket sales on Eventfinda will close at 4:30 pm on concert day, Sat 18 April 2020. Door sales will be available on concert day.
