Haydn’s popular Nelson Mass will be performed in the Royal Dockyard Church, Chatham on Wednesday 29 March at 7.30pm by the University of Kent Choir and Orchestra (Medway)
The Mass will be conducted by Dr Stelios Chatziiosifidis and the soprano will be School of Music and Fine Art alumna Philippa Hardiman. It will be preceded by a talk from Richard Holdsworth MBE about Nelson and the Historic Dockyard Chatham.
Comments Dr Ben Curry, Lecturer & Director of Music Programmes, School of Music & Fine Art:
“The Nelson Mass is widely regarded as one of Haydn’s greatest works. Its performance in the Royal Dockyard Church, built around the time that the mass was composed, provides a unique opportunity to reflect upon and celebrate the drama and beauty of Haydn’s music and the extraordinary naval history of Chatham.”
The first half of the concert will feature items from the School of Music and Fine Art World Percussion Ensemble, Pop, Rock and Soul Choir, and Chamber Music Forum, Guitar Ensemble and Advanced Improvisation Group.
