Mount Kelly Choral Society present one of the great classics of the repertoire, Handel's Messiah, for their Easter concert at St Eustachius' Church in Tavistock on Saturday, March 25th. at 7.30pm.
The Society has gone from strength to strength in recent years under the direction of their new musical director Julian Jensen, who is also the Foundation Director of Music for Mount Kelly.
Messiah features a whole host of memorable music for both choir and soloists including, of course, the famous Hallelujah chorus.
Soloists include local soprano and Mount Kelly singing teacher Bianca Phillips, mezzo-soprano Sophie Kidwell, the outstanding young tenor William Wallace and former member and musical director of the Swingle Singers Mark Williams. There will be professional orchestral accompaniment to complete the performance.
Entry is by programme and costs just £10 for adults, but is free of charge for under 18s. Programmes are available at Book Stop as well as Ward & Chowen Estate Agents, both in Tavistock.
Here on our choir website we hope not only to keep members up to date on all things Mount Kelly Choral, but also to give you a feel for our group if you're thinking about joining, and to inform about upcoming concerts if you're looking forward to hearing us sing.
Mount Kelly Choral Society is a mixed amateur choir with around 45 members coming from Tavistock and its surrounding area.
We sing for the enjoyment of rehearsing and performing major choral works, drawn from a large mainstream classical and contemporary repertoire.
2016 is our 40th anniversary year, and you'll find a brief history of the choir's progress and achievements on the History page.
We hope that you enjoy your visit, and that you like what you see so far.
Our aim is that the MKCS website should progress and develop through your interest, input and feedback. So don't hold back - jump in and let us know your thoughts and feelings... and see you at rehearsals!
