Westmorland Orchestra and Cumbria Festival Chorus

Westmorland Orchestra and Cumbria Festival Chorus

Conductor Richard Howarth, says “It's lovely to see two local groups collaborating for this special musical event in Kendal. On many levels it is a healthy and uplifting project for all involved. I'm looking forward to a grand occasion!"


On Saturday 23rd March the Westmorland Orchestra is joining the Cumbria Festival Chorus for a production of Berlioz' “Te Deum” in Kendal Parish Church.
Ian Jones, director of Cumbria Festival Chorus, says that Berlioz “loved to write music on a grand, ceremonial scale imagining it always being performed in huge spaces by vast numbers of performers. For his monumental setting of the words of the ‘Te Deum’ he imagined a space with an organ at one end and the orchestra and chorus at the other. That is exactly what we have in Kendal Parish Church! We will not be able quite to match Berlioz’s number of performers but our 120-strong chorus and 60-strong orchestra will certainly be able to make the old church resound to much thrilling music!”
The programme will include Mendelssohn's splendid 5th “Reformation” Symphony played by Westmorland Orchestra. The composer's sister named this work as it was written to mark the 300th anniversary of the “Presentation of the Augsberg Confession” - a key event in the protestant reformation.
Tickets are available on the door and from Fantastic Kendal Tourist Information Centre, Finkle Street as well as Orchestra and Chorus Members - £12.00, free for under 19s.
