COME AND SING, Handel's Messiah


Saturday 15th February 2020

Following the great success of our previous Come & Sing events in Abergavenny, Crickhowell Choral Society is delighted to invite you to Come & Sing Handel's Messiah on Saturday, 15th February 2020.

As before, we are indebted to a brilliant team of orchestral players and the talented young choral scholars who will take on the solos in the evening concert. It promises to be another memorable occasion for us all. The day will cost £20 (non-refundable).

The number of choristers will be capped at 150. We have had a waiting list in previous years – so do book your place early.
