Harrogate Choral Society
Royal Hall -
Saturday 9th November
Featuring three well loved works by Elgar - The Spirit of England - written by Elgar at a time when he was greatly affected by suffering caused by the First World War he captures the sadness without becoming maudlin; Sea Pictures - the very first work composed by Elgar after he completed his Enigma Variations which includes a song with lyrics by his wife Alice; and Music Makers - his last substantial work for choir and orchestra in which he clothes the words in unmistakable passion, and they are enhanced by the detailed and masterly orchestral comment.
For this fine evening of great music Harrogate Choral are joined by the the Amici Ensemble; Samantha Hay, Soprano – singing in Spirit of England; and Gaynor Keeble singing both Sea Pictures and in Music Makers; all conducted by Andrew Padmore.
Tickets are just £15 or £20, with £5 tickets for students and IBA, they are free for under 16s when accompanied by at least one paying adult.
