Concert and Event Schedule


 Sunday 2 December 2018 7.45pm St Machar’s Cathedra

Handel: Israel in Egypt

First ever performance by Aberdeen Bach Choir of George Frideric Handel’s Israel in Egypt.

1867 Edward Poynter - Israel in Egypt

This oratorio draws directly on passages from the Old Testament. The 1739 premiere was not well received, and Handel immediately set about to revise the work. It is now a favourite worldwide, not least because of the intense and almost operatic drama Handel brings to the music, both for the double chorus and for the SATB soloists.


Our regular concerts are held twice yearly in St Machar's Cathedral, normally on the last Sunday in April and the first Sunday in December. Projected dates for 2019-2020 are 

28 April and 1 December 2019

26 April and 6 December 2020
