Elijah Concert at St Mary’s Church: 14th June
A ‘Scratch’ Concert at St Mary’s Church
Sunday 14th June at 6.30 pm
Following three very successful years of their ‘scratch concert’ format, it was decided that St Mary’s Church would rest it this year but due to public demand (lobbying by a number of people) Derek Harrison agreed to conduct and direct another concert for Welwyn Festival Week, albeit a week early!
This year there will be a chorus of more than 100 singers, soloists and organist Peter Jaekel, performing Mendelssohns ‘Elijah’, following just one afternoon of rehearsals. Tension and excitement!
Ticket prices are £10 each, both for singers and audience members, available from Hills Violin Shop, High Street, Old Welwyn village. The concert preludes the 41st Welwyn Festival Week and all funds raised will be split between this year’s Welwyn Festival Charities and St Mary’s Church.
