Come and Sing Handel’s Messiah

2 December @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


Handel’s Messiah is one of the all-time great choral works – known to everyone. Cappella Newcastle are delighted to be presenting the work in its entirety in the spring of 2024. However, before then and as a first foray into its pages you are invited to join us for a workshop on Part I. With its focus on Christmas, this is a great way to get into the festive spirit and meet other enthusiastic singers.

Simon Lee, Cappella’s conductor will lead this session, accompanied by Drew Cantrill-Fenwick. There will be a focus on vocal technique and stamina as well explanations of the historical and cultural context of Handel’s masterpiece.

The workshop will take place on Saturday 2nd December, beginning with registration at 11am and culminating in an informal performance, featuring young, local soloists at 4pm to which anyone is welcome to join. Some scores will be available for hire, but you are very welcome to use your own. The preferred edition is the Watkins Shaw (new orange and white Novello).
