Essex Youth Choir sings Mendelssohn’s Elijah with Gabrieli Roar!

What is Gabriel Roar!? Gabrieli’s choral training scheme, Gabrieli ROAR, offers youth choirs the opportunity to perform as  massed choirs, take to the stage alongside world-class period instrumentalists and singers, and renowned soloists in memorable concerts. More details on Gabrieli Roar project are on this link.

Read on this link how the Essex Youth Choir took part in the previous Gabriele Roar! concert of Haydn’s The Creation in Ely Cathedral in October 2021.

Mendelssohn’s Elijah with Gabrieli Roar! The next concert is on 26th July in Ely Cathedral, conducted by Paul McCreesh, and there will be rehearsals in Essex and a residential course for the youth mass choirs.

Ahead of the residential course, the Choir will meet for rehearsals with Essex Music Service tutors to learn the music together and singers will be expected to practice the music between rehearsals using the practice tracks provided.
