Sopranos, 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).
