Holst Singers & The Brook Street Band - London

19 June 2014 - 7:30pm

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.
