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.

This performance is a ‘first’ for Buxton International Festival because amongst the performers will not only be professional singers and players but members of the local community and invited guest singers from our regular Festival goers. The chorus has been rehearsed by the inspirational Jack Apperley, Assistant Chorus Master of the London Symphony Chorus.

This event has an interval.
