If you fancy singing along to one of the greatest pieces of classical music in Western history, a Hemel Hempstead-based choir is inviting you to join its one-day workshop this Saturday.
The Aeolian Singers are welcoming all vocalists to a practice ahead of their 50th anniversary performance of Handel’s Messiah in April.
The workshop, which runs from 9.30am, when registration begins, to 5pm at John F Kennedy School in Warners End will feature a run-through performance of the great 18th century choral work in the afternoon.
There will be tea and coffee breaks throughout the day, but bringing a packed lunch is advised. The rehearsal is free for any audience members who want to watch, but participants must pay £15 in advance or £18 on the day. Call 01442 871598 for more information.
The choir has secured an £800 grant from Dacorum’s Partnerships, Policy and Innovation Grants Panel to support its half-century celebration, which will see conductor of the group’s inaugural Messiah performance in 1964, Roy Abrams, return on cello.
