Haydn     The Creation

Conductor - Graham Jordan Ellis

Milly Forest (soprano)

Toby Ward (Tenor)

Peter Edge (Baritone)

Chester Music Society Choir have joined together with the Chester Philharmonic to bring one of the worlds best loved Oratorios to Chester. Written between 1797 and 1798, with libretto by  Gottfried van Swieten  it is considered by many to be Haydn’s masterpiece. Soprano Milly Forest will be remembered as the young student working in the Wigmore Hall cloakroom who in 2017 was suddenly offered the chance to perform Schubert’s songs as the singer had suddenly had to cancel. Toby Ward is a Yorkshire Lad and recording artist for Hyperion records is a Graduate of King’s College Cambridge and Peter Edge is no stranger to the good people of Cheshire and a graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music.

Please Note:- This is a Chester Music Society Choir Concert and does not constitute part of the reductions for Chester Philharmonic Orchestra Associate Members.
