About The Event
The first half of the concert will be a performance of Jan Dismas Zelenka's Missa dei Filii. Discover this ingenious and unconventional Baroque composer who was highly acclaimed at the time, and yet whose works fell into obscurity for the next 200 years. J S Bach himself knew Zelenka personally, and held his music in high esteem. Fortismere Community Choir hope to contribute to the resurgence of this long-forgotten musical giant, considered by many an equal to Bach, Handel and Vivaldi, with a performance of his Missa dei Filii. The second half will be Christmas carols for audience and choir.
After the interval, where there will be a bar and Christmas nibbles, there will be Christmas carols for audience and choir.
Please note the earlier than usual start time of 7:00 PM!
