The Andover Choral Society, directed by Michael Driscoll, will open its 90th season with a performance of Franz Joseph Haydn’s “The Creation” on Sunday, Jan. 26, at 3 p.m., at West Middle School Auditorium, 70 Shawsheen Road, Andover.
Considered one of Haydn’s most brilliant works, “The Creation” is an oratorio depicting the creation of the world. The text for this jubilant and uplifting work draws from the Book of Genesis, the Book of Psalms, and John Milton’s “Paradise Lost” to celebrate the creation of the Earth, the seas, animals and birds, and humans. Enjoy Haydn’s enchantingly descriptive orchestral writing, triumphant choruses and a trio of angels, portrayed by soprano, tenor and baritone soloists.
Andover Choral Society will perform the work in English. Tickets are $25 for adults in advance ($30 at the door) and $5 for students. A group rate is available. For tickets and information, visit andoverchoralsociety.org/concerts.
