The choir will take to the stage on Saturday 30 November at 7.00 pm at Beverley’s most iconic landmark.
Peter Hunt of the East Riding County Choir said;
“Although composed 278 years ago in 1741, this great work continues to attract large audiences and is especially popular in the run-up to Christmas.”
“Performing Messiah was the motivation behind the formation of County Choir in 1957.”
“Prior to that, a number of local choirs were brought together to perform Messiah in Beverley Minster.”
“The Choir has preserved that tradition and expanded its activities to perform a variety of other works prior to Christmas in alternate years, plus a regular concert at the beginning of May.”
Tickets for Messiah are available from the Beverley Tourist Information office or online via www.eastridingcountychoir.org.
