Sitting in the cafe after the first performance, there was a happy hum of audience as well as the choir – refuelling for the evening performance.

Lasers, maroons, fireworks and streamers added to the excitement at the close of the 1812 Overture. Great feedback on Twitter. Also, super photos thanks to Dan Morrissey.

Book now for our fabulous performance of Handel’s Messiah on Friday 12th December.

The concert included movements from Adiemus, The Armed Man, Requiem, Stabat Mater and orchestral movements from the lyrical euphonium concerto played with panache by David Childs. The finale, Song of the Plains, received an encore of the final section. Read the review.
