Musical evening at St Hilda’s Church

I want to thank everyone involved in the performance of Handel’s Messiah on Saturday night.

The quality of the singing was outstanding and the festival orchestra made a beautiful musical accompaniment.

Stephen Malby did a wonderful job of conducting the St Hilda’s Festival Chorus, which also included members of the Guisborough Choral Society and the orchestra.

The church was packed and I am sure that the audience like me enjoyed their evening immensely, with a glass of wine or fruit juice at the interval.

It was a real treat to have such an excellent event staged at Whitby rather than travelling to a major city.

Thanks again.
