Leith Hill Musical Festival – Friday April 8th, Saturday April 9th 2022
We have all come through very dark times in the past many months of the pandemic, but music will triumph and for the two Leith Hill Music Festival concerts there is a wealth of uplifting music to enjoy. Our choirs will come together to perform major works by Beethoven and our Festival Conductor Jonathan Willcocks (Friday April 8th), followed by the rhythmic vitality of Gershwin, Bob Chilcott and John Rutter (Saturday April 9th).
2022 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Ralph Vaughan Williams, the founder Conductor of the Festival, and each concert programme will begin and end with one of his short choral masterpieces.
Handel – Messiah, Sunday June 19th 2022
In the continuing tradition of performance each season of a major work by a choir drawn from all the Festival choirs (and also welcoming other singers), Sunday June 19th 2022 will feature the greatest of them all, Handel – Messiah. Enrolment to sing in this performance is now open and rehearsals will commence after Easter – do join us to perform with the wonderful professional ensemble Canzona and a brilliant quartet of soloists.
Tickets for all concerts are priced at £17 for stalls, £17 for Balcony and £24 for Bleachers and can only be booked through Dorking Halls Box office:
