What's On - events around Calderdale


8 October 2016


Overgate Hospice Choir: Haydn 'The Creation'

The Creation was the chosen work for the prototype Voices for Hospices event in 1991 generously sponsored by British Telecom and featuring performances of Haydn’s masterpiece all over Britain and is the work of choice for the opening concert of the Choir’s Silver Jubilee Season. 2016 sees the Choir’s fourth presentation of the work, The Creation having been performed previously in 1991, 2001 and 2009. The Creation proved one of the greatest climaxes of Haydn’s remarkable corpus of late works for chorus, soloists and orchestra.

Overgate Hospice Choir is delighted to welcome the soloists and musicians for their 25th Anniversary Concert: Ella Taylor, Paul Dutton and Thom Meredith whilst Alan Horsey provides organ and harpsichord continuo for us once again. With our conductor Dr. Simon Lindley.
