The Creation - Haydn
Review by Nicholas Howard:
This performance, under Penrith Singers' conductor Colin Marston, with orchestra led by Susan Johnson and soloists from the RNCM in Manchester - Emma Peaurt (soprano), Alexander Wall (tenor) and Mark Rowlandson (bass), was as fresh and exciting as the first performance must have been to that Viennese audience.
Despite the wet and windy weather, there was a good audience, with the church almost full. The Penrith area should be proud to be able to raise a choir and orchestra of this standard from a population of its size.
