Buxton International Festival

Come and Sing Haydn’s The Creation

St John's Churchbutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Buxton Musical Society Chorus and Orchestra conducted by Michael Williams with soloists from the Festival Company.

Haydn’s colourful oratorio returns to Buxton as part of The Creation Project – two oratorios written two hundred and twenty two years apart about our planet. Kate Whitley’s oratorio, Our Future In Your Hands, explores the impact of Climate Change and Haydn’s The Creation celebrates the creation of the world. The Buxton Musical Society will perform Haydn’s great musical drama conducted by Michael Williams.

We welcome experienced choral singers to join us in the rehearsals and participate in the evening performance. Attend the morning rehearsal workshop under the inspirational leadership of Jack Apperley, an Associate Conductor of London Symphony Chorus, and share the joy of singing Haydn. Applications to join the chorus are available from the Buxton Musical Society website until 30 April.
