Cheltenham College set to host an evening of classical music

There is a rare chance to soak up an evening of Bach’s seminal compositions in Cheltenham College’s exquisite Chapel, this June 2022.

A wonderful evening of classical music is in store, when Cheltenham College Schola Cantorum perform Bach Mass in B Minor: The Choirs of Cheltenham College on Sunday 12 June 2022.

Featuring a stellar line up of internationally renowned soloists and a professional orchestra, this work is described as the pinnacle of Bach’s choral output.

The chance to experience it live in the beautiful setting of Cheltenham College Chapel is a special event classical music fans won’t want to miss.

Completed in 1749, using drafts beginning in 1724, alongside reworked sections from his Cantatas, the music encapsulates everything that Bach achieved in his choral and orchestral writing during his lifetime.

Never performed in its entirety until after his death, this work has become a firm favourite in the choral repertoire.

The concert is directed by David McKee and features Hannah Davey and Heather Wardle as soprano soloists, Hugh Cutting, alto, James Gilchrist, tenor and Quentin Hayes, bass.

Cheltenham College said: ‘We are privileged to be able to welcome soloists of such distinction for this event, all of them with strong links to Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds.’

Tickets cost £10 per person. For more information, or to book tickets, visit
