Mount Kelly Choral Society Christmas Concert 2024

Highlights from
Mozart's Coronation Mass

Saturday 14th December 7.30pm Tavistock Methodist Church 

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Coronation Mass in C Major, K. 317, is a majestic and jubilant work composed in 1779. It is one of Mozart’s most popular settings of the Mass, often associated with grand ceremonial occasions, including coronations. The Mass is celebrated for its beautiful melodies, rich harmonies, and intricate choral and orchestral writing.

George Frideric Handel’s “Messiah” is his most celebrated oratorio, composed in just 24 days in 1741. Renowned for its stunning choral sections, beautiful arias, and masterful orchestration, “Messiah” has become a cornerstone of the choral repertoire, celebrated worldwide, especially during the Christmas and Easter seasons.

Looking further ahead, next year's Spring Concert will be on Saturday 3rd May featuring Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, to be performed in St Eustachius's Church, Tavistock.

If after watching us sing you would like to join us, we rehearse weekly on a Thursday evening at 7.30, at Mount Kelly School.

We are a mixed choir always welcoming new members.  We sing a wide variety of choral works and perform two or three concerts a year.   Although aspiring to high standards, anyone who wishes to develop their singing abilities is welcome. Auditions are usually only required if the section for the voice concerned is oversubscribed.   The choir is very friendly, reasonably serious but NOT SOLEMN!  
You can attend up to six rehearsals on a trial basis, without obligation.

Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 in the Big Hall at Mount Kelly College.

Annual subscriptions are £70 full subscription. Membership is free to under 18s.
