Holst Singers & The Brook Street Band - London

Handel: Israel in Egypt
St John's Smith Square, London
This concert marks the beginning of a major new initiative for St John’s, launched in this our 300th anniversary year in collaboration with Stephen Layton, to present the complete oratorios of Handel over the next seven years.
From the Israelites suffering in bondage, to the great plagues visited upon Pharaoh; from the flight of the Israelites out of Egypt, to the parting of the Red Sea and their triumphant salvation, Handel’s masterpiece tells one of the most dramatic of all Old Testament stories.
Conducted by the masterful Stephen Layton, and performed by artists at the top of their game, Israel in Egypt promises to be a gold standard concert.
