Our most recent event was the performance of Haydn’s Creation at the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer, Bray, Co. Wicklow on April 27th 8pm.
Tenor, Ross Scanlon was one of the soloists on the night. Ross started singing whilst a pupil at St. Kilian’s, where Bray Choral Society Music Director Frank Kelly teaches.
Anna Devin, also performed on the night, a member of the choir herself, and has since gone on to sing at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and Glyndebourne.
A third soloist, Jeffrey Ledwidge, joined them to form a trio of wonderful singers with international reputations. The Creation is an oratorio written between 1796 and 1798 by Joseph Haydn, and considered by many to be his masterpiece.
