2020 Come and Sing! Handel’s Messiah
St John the Evangelist Church and St Hilda’s College
We are delighted to announce that we will be holding our 6th annual St Hilda's Come and Sing! on Saturday 7 March. This time we shall devote ourselves to performing Part II of Handel’s Messiah:The Passion, culminating in the Hallelujah Chorus. Due to the increasingly popularity of this event, in 2020 we will be performing at the wonderful choral concert space of St John the Evangelist Church (Iffley Road). After the concert there will be a banquet in the College dining hall (for which there is a modest charge).
‘It is with great pleasure, therefore, that I invite you - whether as a singer or as a member of the audience - to come to join the Choir, Orchestra, Alumnae and Friends of St Hilda's in our celebration of good music, fine cuisine and excellent company.’ Dr Jonathan Williams, Director of College Music
