TICKETS are still available for what could be one of the musical highlights of this summer at the Wiltshire Music Centre in Bradford on Avon.

Soulful Messiah: A Celebration on Sunday, June 17 is a major performance project involving multiple vocal and instrumental forces celebrating gospel, swing and jazz.

Music director Mike Daniels and ADM Productions have put together a choir to sing some spectacular arrangements of some of the best-loved choruses from Handel’s classic work Messiah.

They include the award-winning Town Hall Gospel Choir from Birmingham led by Colin Anderson, an outstanding jazz orchestra including a full string section from the Veritas Orchestra, along with internationally-renowned all-female accapella group Black Voices who will also handle the solo roles.

The concerts feature two performances at 5pm and 8pm at the Wiltshire Music Centre and include such favourites as 'Hallelujah'.

Mr Daniels has aspired to bring this project to the stage since he heard the power of the music at the re-opening of Birmingham Town Hall 10 years ago.

This particular production is based on the seminal 1992 album Handel’s Messiah: A Soulful Celebration with the late Steve Gray’s arrangements for full big band and string orchestra, chorus, soloists and bespoke artworks by Somerset artist Annie Musgrove.

Mr Daniels said: “Our internationally-renowned soloists from Black Voices and the award-winning Town Hall Gospel Choir were key elements 10 years ago.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing them down to the South West to sing alongside a 50-plus specially-formed community choir arranged by Steve Gray and a 33-piece handpicked jazz orchestra.

“These arrangements are being performed for the first time in ten years and we are encouraging people to come along and hear this music for themselves while they can.”
