The Whitehall Choir is one of London’s leading amateur choirs. It has a varied repertoire including challenging unaccompanied pieces as well as larger choral works.
Haydn's Creation - St John Smith's Square, 28 March
In the 1790s Joseph Haydn travelled from Austria to spend time in England and was inspired by hearing the large-scale oratorios of Handel. Considered to be Haydn’s masterpiece, The Creation (1797-98) is based on the Book of Genesis and Milton’s Paradise Lost. The Whitehall Choir will be joined by the London Baroque Sinfonia whose members are some of the best players of period instruments in the UK. The combination of orchestra, choir and top-class soloists will make for a wonderful evening of thrilling choruses and beautiful solo arias.
