OUR 2022/2023 Season
Concert 2: Saturday 4th March 2023, 7.30pm at All Saints’ Church, Marlow
The orchestra is looking forward to another collaboration with the Camerata Consort to perform Messiah by Handel.
On Saturday 4th March the singers of the Camerata Consort join the Chiltern Camerata, conducted by Simon Walton, in a soul-stirring performance of Handel’s Messiah – one of the best-loved choral works of all time. This work has thrilled audiences for over 250 years and brought us the Hallelujah chorus which may well be the most well-known single item of classical music.
Featuring wonderfully uplifting choruses and arias such as The trumpet shall sound; He shall feed his flock; and I know that My Redeemer Liveth, The Messiah tells the big story of Christ’s birth, crucifixion and resurrection – a true enlightenment story for us all. Whatever your faith or beliefs, come along and enjoy this fabulous music which does exactly what Handel wanted it to do: for us to leave the venue as better people. It is truly uplifting music! Please do come. We look forward to seeing you.

BECOME A FRIEND OF THE CAMERATA?
We would like to develop closer links with audience members and those who support us in other ways, and so we have decided to introduce a ‘Friends of the Camerata’ scheme. Becoming a friend does not necessarily involve paying any money, although of course donations and financial sponsorships are always welcome and will be appropriately acknowledged! Friendship can come in other forms too, especially by helping the orchestra in practical ways, including publicity and general organisation. If you might be interested in assisting us in any way at all, do please contact us for further details by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Other ways of helping the Chiltern Camerata
The orchestra has entered into a partnership with easyfunding.org.uk This charity offers an on-line shopping facility through which Chiltern Camerata supporters can nominate the orchestra as a preferred good cause. Then, when you shop the easyfundraising way through one of their 3,135 shops and sites, they award the orchestra a commission for your purchase. It doesn’t cost you a penny extra!
The facility is now live at https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/chilterncamerata/
