Treat yourself to a day of choral music-making and help us to raise money for vulnerable children!

Join us for a singing day exploring Handel's ever-popular Messiah, under the inspiring leadership of the EAC's founder and musical director, Leslie Olive. The day will be in aid of Coram, the children's charity, whose founder Thomas Coram established the Foundling Hospital in 1741, counting Handel amongst its patrons. EAC will be performing the Messiah in St Mary's in April next year.

Our accompanist will be the amazing Doug Tang.
