Choral Blockbuster 'Elijah' returns to Worcester Cathedral
One of the regions's most accomplished choirs, Worcester Festival Choral Society, will be performing Mendelssohn's masterwork Elijah in the imposing surroundings of Worcester Cathedral
The 150-strong choir, accompanied by the Meridian Sinfonia symphony orchestra, is bringing the classical choral favourite to the City for the first time in sixteen years. They will be joined by acclaimed soloists - Swedish soprano Susanna Andersson, Australian mezzo-soprano Catherine Carby, tenor Ruairi Bowen and bass Edward Seymour. The concert, which will be sung in English, is conducted by the choral society's music director Christopher Allsop.
Ten lucky concert-goers could also win dinner before the show, thanks to a special partnership between Worcester Festival Choral Society and Cote Restaurant in Worcester High Street.
Concert tickets (£10 - £25, some concessions available) and opt-in to the prize draw are available at www.worcesterfestivalchoralsociety.org.uk.
