Prescot Festival Come & Sing 2015

come_and_sing_prescot_festival_chorusSopranos, altos, tenors and basses from across the region are invited to ‘come and sing’ Karl Jenkins’s The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace at the 11th Annual Prescot Festival of Music & the Arts.

Prescot Festival Chorus attracts around 100 singers every year, and there’s always room for a few more. Previous successes include Fauré’s Requiem, Haydn’s The Creation and excerpts from Handel’s Messiah.

You will attend a rehearsal at 7pm on Wednesday 17 June, then 3pm on Saturday 20 June, and finally perform as part of a ‘Choral Spectacular’ at 7pm that evening.

The venue is the magnificent Jacobean Prescot Parish Church of St Mary’s, the borough of Knowsley’s only Grade I listed building.

James Luxton of Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral conducts, and Peter Kwater of St Bartholomew’s Church Choir, Rainhill, is on the organ.

Each participant pays £5, which includes score hire. Please return the entry form, along with your payment, by email or post (all details on forms).

    I am interested in joining your Armed Man “come- and -sing” but would not be able to attend the rehearsal on the preceding Wednesday.
    I do have my own copy and sing Alto.

      That’s fine, Betty – we’d be pleased to have you come along, even if you can’t make both rehearsals. The Saturday rehearsal is the crucial one! 🙂

    I’d like to ‘Come and Sing’ alto in the Armed Man: shall I just bring my registration forms and payment to the rehearsal this Wednesday?
