Voicelab Big Sing: Haydn's The Creation

Part of Belief and Beyond Belief

Come and sing the choral music from Haydn's The Creation. In the opening weekend of Belief & Beyond Belief, Southbank Centre's Voicelab takes a look at Haydn's 18th century musical interpretation of creation.

Features text taken from the Book of Psalms, the Book of Genesis, and John Milton’s Paradise Lost.

Led by conductor and educator Dominic Peckham.

All singing abilities are welcome to join. However, the ability to read music is strongly advised due to the pace and nature of the session.
