Jan Dismas Zelenka Missa dei Filii ZWV 20 | Interval | Carols for choir and audience

Discover the ingenious and unconventional composer Jan Dismas Zelenka, a Baroque composer who was highly acclaimed at the time, and yet whose works fell into obscurity for the next 200 years. J S Bach himself knew Zelenka personally, and held his music in high esteem. Fortismere Community Choir hope to contribute to the resurgence of this long-forgotten musical giant, considered by many an equal to Bach, Handel and Vivaldi, with a performance of his Missa dei Filii. The second half will be Christmas carols for audience and choir.

Tickets are available online in advance (£12) or on the door (£15), U12s £8. www.fortismeremusiccentre.co.uk.
