02-Feb-2019 Come & Sing Handel’s Samson

Saturday 2nd Feburary 2019 – timings to be confirmed

All Saints Church, 2 Vicarage Rd, Hoole, Chester CH2 3HZ

** Exact Timings and full details to be confirmed**
Our winter choral workshops have become legendary across the North with singers coming from as far as Newcastle and Aberystwyth. In 2019, we invite you to Come and Sing Handel’s Samson. You get to act as a real Philistine and also watch the pillars come down on poor Samson’s head while singing some of his liveliest choruses, such as ‘Let their celestial concerts all unite’. You also get to hear some of Handel’s most famous arias, including ‘Let the bright Seraphim’ and ‘Total eclipse’ sung by some of the North West’s rising young soloists.

 

11-May-2019 Come & Sing Gilbert & Sullivan – The Gondoliers

Saturday, 11 May 2019 at 13:00–17:00

Venue: to be confirmed

**Timing and venue to be confirmed**
It’s been a while since Chester Bach Singers trod the boards with G & S but they invite you to swell the chorus as Gondoliers or Contadine in one of the duo’s most tuneful creations. Italian opera joins with farce in this story of one of two babies stolen in infancy who may (or may not, it turns out) be a King – but which of the brothers is it? Dance a Cachucha with members of CBS, who will also delight again as soloists, and narrate the story, with Catherine Barnett conjuring up Venetian magic from the piano as Martin Bussey aims to make sure you catch the last park-and-ride gondola.
