Witney Choir to sing Handel’s Messiah at The Royal Albert Hall, London

For the past 2 years, West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts’ has taken a group of adult singers to perform Handel’s ‘Messiah’ at TRAH London as part of ‘The Really Big Chorus’.
Last year, we took 55 singers and with accompanying family members filled 2 coaches for the performance in November.
The performance, with full orchestra and soloists, is conducted by local celebrity Brian Kay.

We are doing the same this year – preparations start in May, but people need to be enrolled by March 1st.
· No previous experience required
· No requirement to read music
· Mentoring and rehearsals take place from May – November

Anyone interested please contact WOAPA principal, Brian Conroy at info@woapa.co.uk, 01993 358161 or visit www.WOAPA.co.uk
There is a ‘come and find out’ evening planned for Thursday 25th Feb, in Witney

This year, we are also hoping to take a group of children to perform at the matinee performance at the Royal Albert Hall.
Any interested parents should contact Brian at the details above.
