Solomon at Bath Abbey

Bath Recitals now on YouTube

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new YouTube channel where you can watch the recent performance of Handel’s Solomon…

This amazing performance in Bath Abbey on Saturday 22nd April was the first professional performance of ‘Solomon’ in Bath since Handel’s day. This Coronation Concert for the City of Bath also marked the anointing of King Charles III on the site where the first King of all England, King Edgar was crowned in 973. 

The Georgian Festival Chorale and St Woolos Sinfonia performed one of Handel’s greatest oratorios under the baton of Daniel Robert Cushing (pictured above).

Coming up…

The Georgian Festival Chorale & Orchestra are back this summer to capture the spirit of the Georgian age with an 18th century gala concert of music by some of the great composers of the period. Music by William Boyce, Henry Purcell, JS Bach and Wolfgang Mozart will feature with soprano Eleonore Sian Cockerham, mezzo-soprano Molly Soo and baritone Matthew Tilley.
