MagSoc 2016

MagSoc Symphony Orchestra and Chorus

The St. Margaret’s Society of Queens’ plays Handel

Thursday 30th November

8:00 pm

The St. Margaret’s Society of Queens’ (MagSoc) proudly presents their Michaelmas Term concert, an all-Handel programme conducted by Jack Spencer.

MagSoc Symphony Orchestra open the concert with the stirring overture to Handel’s ‘Occasional Oratorio’ and his engaging Organ Concerto in F major, nicknamed ‘The Cuckoo and the Nightingale’ for its bird-song motifs.

Whilst ‘The Cuckoo and the Nightingale’ is certainly the most popular of his organ concertos, Handel’s most famous choral work is undoubtedly his oratorio: ‘Messiah’. MagSoc Symphony Orchestra will be joined by MagSoc Chorus for a rousing rendition of Part I of this tremendous work, ending with the ‘Hallelujah’ chorus.

Handel Overture to the Occasional Oratorio
Handel Organ Concerto no.13 in F major: 'The Cuckoo and the Nightingale'
Handel Messiah: Part I & the ‘Hallelujah’ Chorus
