MusicSinging Messiah - An Ards Christmas Choir

Led by composer and musician Neil Martin, Singing the Messiah is a performance of extracts from Handel’s Messiah, sung in Ulster-Scots by a community choir, formed in the Ards peninsula. The progress of the choir has been filmed for a BBCNI documentary, which will also capture the final performance on the night.

The 30-minute performance will feature solo arias, orchestral symphonies and a selection of compelling chorus numbers from Handel's Messiah, performed by a 40-strong newly formed community choir.

Everyone welcome.

*Please note: DoubleBand Films will be filming the performance as part of a documentary series for BBC NI, in conjunction with the Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund.

This event is free of charge but you still need tickets.
