Music - Choir Concert, Sat 11 May 2019, £12-£14



Rachel Little - soprano Amy Shaw - mezzo-soprano Christopher Steele - tenor Paul im Thurn - Bass Organ - Ian Pattinson Conductor - Ian Hare


The final performance in Keswick Choral Society’s busy 2018-19 season will be a per-formance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah, one of the greatest oratorios in the choral repertoire. First performed in 1846 to rapturous acclaim by an audience of 2,000, and then many times over the following hundred years, it fell out of favour after WW2 but in recent years has regained popularity.
The concert will take place in St John’s Church, Keswick, on Saturday 11 May 2019 at 7.30 pm.
The four soloists all have local connections
