Singers are ready to do justice to the ‘Messiah’

Please read our Concert Preview with insights from our musical director Peter Asprey in this weeks’ Henley Standard

Henley Choral Society chair Susan Edwards said: “Handel’s Messiah is a glorious work that everyone should hear at least once in their life. It is a real pleasure for the choir to be performing in such a beautiful concert hall alongside experienced musicians and world class soloists. We hope the choir’s rendition of the Hallelujah chorus will trigger the tradition of standing, if you are able, which began, allegedly, when King George II stood up during the chorus at Messiah’s London debut. This is sure to be a memorable evening and not to be missed.”

Concert will be held on Saturday 23rd March at 7.30pm at Reading Concert Hall,

Tickets are £20 for adults and £12 for under-18s, with seating unreserved. To help with transport to the venue, the society has laid on a coach that leaves from Henley railway station at 6.15pm, with return tickets priced £6. For more information and to book, visit
