Haydn's last major choral work, the sequel to The Creation. The work takes you through the changing year but concentrates less on the weather and more on hunting, dancing, eating and drinking! Come and join us as we enjoy the rustic pleasures of a time when things were simpler and more straight forward.
A world-famous chamber orchestra with a 70-year musical pedigree joins Exeter Philharmonic Choir for one night only for an unmissable performance of The Creation.
Exeter Philharmonic Choir, the city’s oldest choral ensemble, will be performing alongside the UK’s longest-established chamber orchestra, The London Mozart Players, which celebrates its 70th anniversary season in 2019.
The two distinguished musical ensembles will come together to perform Haydn’s masterpiece for a special Lord Mayor’s Concert.
Join Exeter Choral Society on 9 May 2018 for the first concert of our 75th year.
The choir started as Whipton Choral Society in 1943, when Exeter was a garrison city, to provide entertainment and community involvement for locals and visting troops. The choir now has over 100 singers and continues to grow, regularly performing to packed audiences.
In May we'll be singing Handel's Coronation Anthems, including 'Zadok the Priest,' Mozart's Coronation Mass and Haydn's Missa brevis Sancti Johannis de Deo.
