2019 sees the return of our Benslow Baroque Oratorio course: this year we will be straying into the second half of the 18th century! We are looking to recruit a team of violins, violas, cellos, double basses, flutes, oboes, bassoons, horns, trumpets and timpani, as well as a chorus of singers to put together a concert performance to a public audience of Handel’s The Choice of Hercules (1751) and Thomas Linley’s The Song of Moses (1778) in just four days. The solo roles will be auditioned on Tuesday 29 January 2019 - register your interest using the contact form opposite. Participants will arrive around 4pm on Sunday 7 April and will depart after the 2pm public performance (at the Benslow Music campus) on Thursday 11 April. We’ll be playing in period style at A=415 and on period instruments, but we also welcome string players on modern instruments with gut strings and baroque bows too.
