A 70-STRONG Marches choir will be performing music from Haydn, Mozart and Perolesi in Bishop's Castle.

The featured work is Joseph Haydn's 'Imperial Nelson Mass' of 1805, which is brimming with the unmistakable imprints of Haydn's delightfully melodic charm and harmonic beauty.

The choir will also present Mozart’s hauntingly beautiful ‘Laudate Dominum’ on November 25, featuring soprano soloist Hannah Davey, who will make her third appearance in the town. 

Two works by Giovanni Pergolesi, an Italian Baroque composer, will complete the programme – ‘Magnificat’, a superb, festal setting, and his lively, engaging ‘Flute Concerto in G’.

The flute soloist is Christopher Lacey, a local professional musician who is well-known in the area.

Musical Director Alistair Auld said: "This concert is full of uplifting melodic charm and often charged with a surge of energy that is characteristic of these three 18th Century composers, whose lives span the Baroque and Classical eras of music.”

The event is taking place at St St John's Church in Bishop's Castle from 7.30pm on Saturday, November 25. Tickets can be bought by calling 07806 433394 or by visiting ticketsource.co.uk
