To celebrate the 275th anniversary of the first performance of Handel's Messiah in Dublin 1742, Sheffield Bach Choir invite you to 'Come Sing Messiah' in Sheffield Cathedral on Saturday 8th April 2017 at 7.00pm. The performance will be accompanied, in Denis Wright's famous transcription of this much loved work, by Rothwell Temperance Band (musical director David Roberts). Simon Lindley conducts and we are joined by a stunning array of soloists. Come and sing or listen.
Important further details for singers are shown below, including arrangements for an optional afternoon rehearsal.
