A former organ scholar at Southwell Minster, David Soar, will sing the title role at St Mary’s Church, Nottingham when Nottingham Bach Choir and Orchestra perform Mendelssohn’s much loved oratorio ‘Elijah’ on 19th November at 7.30pm.

In recent times, he has made his debut at the Royal Opera House and in ‘Don Giovanni‘ at Glyndebourne and performed to critical acclaim at the 2010 BBC Proms as the Nightwatchman in ‘Die Meistersinger’.

Soloists will include Toby Hyde-Barker, a senior Chorister at Southwell Minster. Paul Hale, Rector Chori of Southwell Minster, will conduct the choir

Tickets are available from Classical CD, Goosegate, Nottingham, via the Nottingham Bach Choir website or on the evening of the performance (subject to availability).
