George Frideric Handel’s most loved 1741 oratorio, Messiah, also known as A Sacred Oratorio, will be performed in St. Dunstan’s Church on Friday the 15th of December 2023. With a line up of esteemed soloists associated with companies such as Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Glyndebourne, English National Opera and English Touring Opera and the new Mayfield Festival Orchestra under the leadership of its Principal Conductor, Jack Gonzalez-Harding, this promises to be a memorable evening filled with wonderful music.
There will be one twenty minute interval during the performance.
A bar will be available both before the concert and during the interval.
