The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Webteam: July 2015
This coming Friday evening sees one of the highlights of Chester's musical year taking place in Chester Cathedral. The Manchester Camerata join the Chester Festival Chorus for a performance of Haydn's magnificent oratorio, The Creation, conducted by James Burton. Soloists include the 1997 Winner of the Kathleen Ferrier Award, Sarah Fox (soprano) and David Butt Philip (tenor) who made his English National Opera debut as Rodolfo in La Boheme last autumn to huge critical acclaim.
The Director of the Festival Chorus is Tattenhall resident, Frances Cooke, one of this country's leading choral directors. She has worked with many choruses including the BBC Symphony Chorus and the Huddersfield Choral Society. For the last six years she has been Associate Director of the Halle Choir and prepared them for their critically acclaimed performances and recording of Elgar's The Apostles which won both the BBC Music Magazine's Recording of the Year and the Gramophone Award in 2012.
A number of singers from Tattenhall and District will be participating in the chorus; why not come along to what is certain to be a magnificent concert? Tickets can be obtained from www.chestermusicfestival.co.uk or call 0845 241 7868
