Love to sing or play?
Whether your usual stage is the classroom or the concert hall, you’re invited to join Paul McCreesh, Artistic Director of the Gabrieli Consort and Players, in a massed rehearsal of choruses from Haydn’s Creation. Immerse yourself in this masterpiece of choral and orchestral music, guided and inspired by Paul, his colleagues and young musicians from Chetham’s, and share it with family and friends in an informal performance at the end of the session. Singers and instrumentalists of all ages from 11 upwards are welcome to be part of a unique afternoon of music creation.
This event takes place on the stage and in choir seats and/or audience seating areas. All areas are fully accessible, but please let us know of any specific access requirements to help us make arrangements for your visit.
Recommended minimum age 11. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult, who may participate or observe. Please book complimentary tickets for observing adults to help us manage the day.
Participants choosing to play should be confident in reading music and in performing repertoire at around grade 5 level.
Singers may be of any standard, but should be able to read music and be familiar with the repertoire to be performed.
You are welcome to bring your own score or to borrow a score on the day only; we’re unable to distribute scores in advance.
Friends and family are welcome to join you for the showcase at the end; free unticketed entry on a first come, first served basis. Timings for this, and further details of the day, will be sent to you in advance of the event.
