This year's Spring Concert features a performance of Haydn’s brilliant oratorio, The Creation,  inspired by Handel’s revival of the genre.  The Creation, first performed in 1799,  draws its text from the Book of Genesis and Milton’s Paradise Lost . Parts 1 and 2 depict the six days of creation, whilst part 3 relates to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  The music is colourful, dramatic and descriptive and has delighted audiences the world over for more than two hundred years.

The Concert is a co-operative venture with Sittingbourne Orpheus and Bearsted Choral Societies and features the following soloists 

Penelope Martin-Smith (soprano)

Greg Tassell (tenor)

Ben Bevan (bass)
