The Creation

HCS Creation Concert revised advert-page-001

For the next part of our spectacular Bicentenary season celebrations, Halifax Choral Society will be recreating our first ever performance (200 years ago) of The Creation by Haydn, accompanied on period instruments by the Hanover Band, one of Britain’s finest period instruments orchestras. This is a rare opportunity for the music-lovers of Yorkshire to hear one of the great choral works performed on the instruments that would have been used when the piece was composed. As quoted on their website, the use of historic instruments changes the whole quality of a performance because ‘they have more colour, shape and less weight than modern instruments. They are more tangy, more piquant”. It will be as near to time travel as any of us are ever likely to get and will be a unique experience not to be missed.edit 1edit 2thb_2013_2-1thb_2016_1THB_Beijing_2017_5THB_Beijing_2017_6
