St Ives Choral Society is pleased to present Haydn’s
masterpiece and perhaps best-known work, a depiction in music of the events of
the book of Genesis; how God created heaven and earth, man and woman and all
the creatures. Written for chorus, orchestra and three soloists, there are
exciting and energising choruses and arias ranging from the dramatic to the
ethereal, including the notable mention of the worm in the bass aria. With a dynamic
line-up of soloists, an orchestra of local professionals and St Ives Choral
Society under their Director Alison Daniels, this promises to be an evening not
to be missed!
Soloists: Felicity Hayward, soprano; Michael Solomon Williams, tenor; Aidan Smith, bass. The orchestra is led by Julia Frape.
