Portsmouth Festival Choir will be presenting an evening of classical favourites at 7.30 on Saturday 23rd November, at the Church of the Resurrection Drayton.
The Choir will be singing two works by Gabriel Fauré – the beautiful Requiem and the Cantique de Jean Racine, followed by Mendelssohn’s Hymn of Praise. This ‘symphonic cantata’ is part of the composer’s Symphony No 2, but is often performed as a separate work. It includes the Lutheran chorale ‘Nun Danket’ (Now thank we all our God).
The concert will be conducted by Ben Lathbury and accompanied by Mark Dancer with soloists Kiera Smitheram and Jon Grave.
Tickets are £12 (£10 concessions), under-18s and students free. They are available from ticketsource.co.uk, from choir members or on the night on the door.
