Harpenden Choral Society's HAYDN: THE CREATION

Date: 20th Nov 2021
Start Time: 7:30 pm

Harpenden Choral Society is delighted to present the first concert of our new season, following a year in which it was not possible to perform due to Covid.

We are excited to be performing Haydn’s great oratorio, The Creation. It depicts the creation of the world as described in the Book of Genesis. Composed in 1798 when Haydn, at age 66, was producing many of his most celebrated compositions. The Creation is a dramatic, almost operatic, setting of texts from the Bible, Psalms and Milton’s Paradise Lost. As popular today as when it was first performed, this dramatic oratorio for soloists and chorus is vivid with adventurous harmony, exciting fugues and melodious arias.

The concert will be conducted by the choir’s Musical Director, John Andrews and will feature professional soloists Alison Langer, Jorge Navarro Colorado and Felix Kemp as well as The King’s Sinfonietta Orchestra.

Tickets are £15 for adults and £5 for children and students.  Tickets are available at Creature Comforts, Vaughan Road, Harpenden AL5 4EF or through Box Office Manager Tricia Beavis on 01582 419379; by email to or online at

Ticket numbers will be limited to allow for social distancing.
