Come and Sing Haydn’s The Creation

Sat 23 July 2022

Buxton Musical Society Chorus and Orchestra conducted by Michael Williams with soloists from the Festival Company.

Haydn’s colourful oratorio returns to Buxton as part of The Creation Project – two oratorios written two hundred and twenty-two years apart about the planet, which we inhabit.  Kate Whitley’s oratorio Our Future In Your Hands explores the impact of climate change and Haydn’s The Creation celebrates the creation of the world.  The Buxton Musical Society will perform Haydn’s great musical drama conducted by Michael Williams MBE.

Experienced choral singers are invited to share the joy of singing this great work by joining the Society Chorus in the day’s rehearsals and performance.  The morning rehearsal workshop will be led by the inspirational Jack Apperley, Assistant Chorus Master of the London Symphony Chorus, followed by an afternoon orchestral rehearsal and evening performance.  Applications to join the chorus are available from the Buxton Musical Society website until Friday 20 May.
