Barclays House Choir / Weymouth Choral Society – Mendelssohn – ELIJAH
Saturday 3rd June 2017, Wimborne Minster, Wimborne, 7.30pm
On Saturday 3 June at 7.30pm, Barclays House Choir and Weymouth Choral Society will present a performance of Mendelssohn’s oratorio ‘Elijah’ in the beautiful setting of Wimborne Minster. The two choirs are both directed by Helen Brind, who said of the joint venture: ‘ We are thrilled to be combining to form a choral force of well over 100 voices, which together with four professional soloists and the skilful members of St Peter’s Orchestra, will bring to life this very dramatic and intense choral work.’ The role of Elijah will be sung by the Dorset-based bass, Jonathan Prentice, with the other solo parts being interpreted by tenor Paul Smy, mezzo-soprano Kate Howden and soprano Carrie-Anne Williams.
Tickets priced £12/£10 are available from Square Records, The Square, Wimborne or phone 01202 552571.
Barclays House Choir gives two concerts each year, in December and May. The December concert is a Christmas concert with carols for the audience to join in. The spring concert often features a major choral work. Both concerts also feature the St Peter’s Orchestra.
Tickets for concerts are always available on the door, but to save queuing we advise booking in advance by telephone. Please see this website for details of upcoming events.
