Creation Rehearsals

Notes from MD for Rehearsal on 21/9/2022

This week we shall be looking at No’s 27 and 31. These are long choruses and are with soli. Please can you all mark up your copies accordingly and make sure you know where you come in. As I have said before; do not get too engrossed in following the solos, by all means keep an eye on them but, it is very easy to miss entries if you are not looking ahead.  Last week was excellent so let’s keep up the enthusiasm and effort. 

Open evening Rehearsal on 28/9/2022

Handel Coronation Anthems: Chichester – 23 October 2021

The Sixteen choir and orchestra present a celebration of the baroque at its grandest, its most opulent, and its most glorious in a programme featuring Handel’s four Coronation Anthems among other work by the composer including the magnificent final Amen from Messiah. Further information and tickets are available through our website: Handel Coronation Anthems: Chichester – The Sixteen
In order for our audiences to continue to feel confident and safe when attending our Choral Pilgrimage concerts this autumn, we will be providing a mix of standard and socially distanced seating, and each performance will last one hour with no interval.
In addition to the Chichester Concert, The Sixteen have produced a pair of films to accompany the choir’s 2021 Choral Pilgrimage Tour which we would like to share.

The Call of Rome Films are free to watch here https://bit.ly/3DnD9W3
