The Leith Hill Musical Festival is proud to present what could be your 'once in a lifetime' opportunity to sing in this rarely performed masterpiece with a top conductor, professional orchestra and soloists. Jonathan Willcocks will conduct the internationally-acclaimed baroque orchestra Canzona, with rising stars of the concert platform as soloists and a 240-strong amateur choir expertly trained by our chorus master Ben Costello.
There will be 9 rehearsals on Saturdays or Sundays starting on 11 January and culminating in the performance at the Dorking Halls on the evening of Sunday 8 March 2020. The first rehearsal is in Reigate, the others in Dorking, and a full schedule of places, dates and times is on our website here. You will be expected to attend most of these rehearsals and must attend the last two.
Tickets are available to sing in any of the 8 parts, but as rehearsals progress some singers may be asked to switch between 1st and 2nd choirs to achieve an appropriate balance.
We will be singing in Latin from the traditional 'Old Novello' edition of the score and you can either bring your own copy or hire one. Alternative scores will not be acceptable.
A fee of £50 gives you Festival Membership for a full year comprising principally this series of rehearsals and concert, but you will also have access to other Festival events. Many of the singers for the Bach B Minor Mass will come from one of our member choirs, but ALL SINGERS ARE WELCOME.
Singing Tickets are available from Eventbrite - follow this link - where you will be able to select either a £55 ticket (including score hire) or £50 ticket (BYO score).
There are REDUCED PRICES for Under 18's and students £30 or £25.
