Bearsden Choir 50th Anniversary Concert

Handel's Messiah


Arguably one of the best-loved works in any choir’s repertoire Messiah was first performed by Bearsden Choir, formerly the Bearsden Burgh Choir, in 1968 the year of its foundation. We are delighted to bring this fabulous work to you on the occasion of our 50th Anniversary.


Messiah, by George Frederic Handel with text taken from the King James’ Bible and the Book of Common Prayer, was first performed in Dublin on 13th April 1742. The work, which was originally designed to be performed on Wednesdays and Fridays in Lent, when theatrical performances were banned by law, has steadily increased in popularity to occupy the place it has today. It is operatic in its construction having three movements, which respectively deal with the annunciation and birth of Christ, his Passion and Resurrection and finally the promise of Redemption. It is performed by large and small choirs alike, each of which brings something special to the work.


Do come and join us for what will be a truly spectacular performance of this wonderful oratorio.
