Our next concert

Sunday 17 July 2022 – 11am – St John’s Church, Buxton

Buxton International Festival

Festival Mass – Beethoven Mass in C

In a belated tribute to the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, the Society’s annual contribution to the Buxton International Festival this year is Beethoven’s First Mass – in C. With his one-time teacher, Haydn in failing health, Beethoven siezed his opportunity to show his Viennese audience a fresh outlook on the liturgical text.

The performance takes its place in the formal Eucarist Service which is a weekly feature of worship at St John’s Church.

Soloists to be announced

Chorus and Orchestra of Buxton Musical Society
Leader —  Steven Wilkie

Conducted by Michael Williams

Seating is unreserved.

As this is a church service, there is no admission charge. There will be a retiring collection for the performers in addition to the normal church offertory.
