You are invited to join us in singing the Bach-St John Passion on Sunday the 10th March 2019 at the Dorking Halls, Dorking, Surrey conducted by the Festival Conductor Jonathan Willcocks. Our Chorus is Master Ben Costello and approximately 4 of the rehearsals will be taken by Jonathan.
The rehearsals will be held at the Priory School, West Bank, Dorking RH4 3DG. Please see the rehearsal schedule on the LHMF website.
We ask for a commitment to attend the schedule of rehearsals.
Message from Jonathan:
What a marvellous opportunity to prepare and perform such a great work as J.S.Bach - St. John Passion together! I can vividly remember my first experience singing this piece as a boy chorister - not only are there so many terrific choruses to sing but it is such a powerful and moving drama too. We will have a very strong team of soloists, led by James Oxley as the Evangelist, and the specialist baroque orchestra Canzona to play for us, and I very much look forward to seeing you all when we begin rehearsals in the New Year.
Registration forms should be returned to me by the 19th December. Please do not include hire of music cost at this point, you will be able to this at the first few rehearsals.
Payment can be made by cheque or BACS payment see registration form attached.
An announcement will be made on the website should a rehearsal need to be cancelled due to ‘bad’ weather.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Hon.Sec and Organiser LHMF
