Come and Sing Haydn’s Harmoniemesse with St Matthew’s Orchestra and Choir, taking place on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd July, at St Matthew’s Church in Chapel Allerton (LS7 3QF), working on Interested singers are invited to visit their website (www.stmatthewsorchestra.com/come-and-sing) for more information or to apply for a place.
About the work
F.J. Haydn’s Harmoniemesse, Hob. XXII:14, was written in 1802 and is his last major work. The title roughly translates as ‘wind band mass’ (‘Harmonie’ being the German word for a wind band). It is ambitiously scored, calling for double winds (flutes, oboes, clarinets and bassoons), and double brass (two French horns and two trumpets), together with the usual timpani, strings, and organ.
St Matthew’s Orchestra is a new per-service orchestra venture based in Chapel Allerton. It was established in 2017 with the aim of providing recent music graduates and students the opportunity to undertake paid professional engagements, before entering fully the highly competitive music market.
Is this for me?
If you have some experience of reading music or even singing in a choir—definitely yes! And don’t worry, there will be ample time on Saturday to get familiar with the notes.
St. Matthew’s Parish Church, Chapel Allerton, Leeds. Just off Wood Lane, LS7 3QF. Plenty of on- and off-street parking. Easily reachable by public transport (2, 3, 3A, 48; 7A, 7S).
