Spring Concert 2020: Handel – Alexander’s Feast

Saturday, March 21, 2020 at 7.30pm - St. Swithin's Church, Walcot Street, Bath

Our Spring Concert in St Swithin’s features the baroque magnificence of Handel’s delightful Alexander’s Feast. One of the most varied and sheerly beautiful of Handel’s oratorios, this work puts choir, soloists and orchestra through its paces as the whole gamut of emotions is depicted at the famous feast. We include Handel’s wonderful Harp Concerto no.6 and the Concerto Grosso Alexander’s Feast in the evening, and our young team of soloists will feature some of the brightest talent to emerge recently on the UK scene.

Summer Masterclass-Workshop weekend 2020: Haydn – The Seasons (18th-19th July)

Saturday, July 18, 2020 at - Hartham Park

Saturday 18th – Sunday 19th July

Our summer term 2020 culminates in our unique Masterclass-Workshop weekend in the delightful setting of Hartham Park near Corsham – these weekends are open to guest singers of all abilities (contact jmwmusic@icloud.com). We shall spend the weekend exploring and perfecting Haydn’s splendid The Seasons with young soloists in masterclass with Gavin, and generally soaking up the Downton Abbey-vibe of the glorious Hartham Park as we sing one of Haydn’s greatest and least well-known choral works. Written after The Creation, this work has all the fabulous choral writing and wonderful solos we expect from Haydn at his peak, and it will be a sheer joy to explore A-grade Haydn that is relatively unknown.
