Saffron Walden: Singing great music for Christian Aid
THE choir of St Mary’s Church, Saffron Walden is inviting all singers to join them in raising funds for Christian Aid by singing favourite choruses from Handel’s Messiah on Saturday May 21.
‘Come & Sing Messiah’, led by Oliver King, the church’s recently appointed organist and choir master, begins with rehearsal at 2pm and will culminate in a concert performance at 7.30pm.
The singers will be accompanied throughout by John Pryer, organist at the Oratory Church, Birmingham and Alexandra Palace, London and joined for the evening concert by soloists, soprano S�an Newman and tenor Eleias Roberts, and students from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
Mr King said: “I am immensely looking forward to ‘Come and Sing Messiah’, working with a wide range of enthusiastic singers, making some great music, and raising much needed funds for a very worthy cause.
“With the combination of singers and concert audience we hope to fill St Mary’s Church for the evening performance.”
