About the event

“Notable Works” presents Haydn’s “The Creation”

“Notable Works” was set up in 2017 for the purpose of staging large-scale choral works in Waterford. We began by staging Handel’s Messiah in December 2017, and again in December 2018. In 2019 we performed parts 1 and 2 of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. We have had other events at other times of the year, including works by Bach, Mendelssohn, Faure and Stanford. However, the first Sunday in December has become the slot for our main production.

In 2020 we were prevented from pursuing our objectives by the COVID pandemic; in December 2021 we presented a “virtual concert”, featuring highlights from Messiah. This year we are delighted to be back to live singing – this time with one of Haydn’s best loved works – his Oratorio “The Creation”.

We have a choir of just over 60 singers, and there will be a 20-piece orchestra. Dr Kevin O’Carroll will be the musical director, and the soloists include Roisin O’Grady, Andrew Gavin and Eoin Power. Roisin and Eoin are local singers of whom we are very proud.

  • The event will take place in St Johns Church, Parnell Street
  • Tickets will remian on sale & to collect at Theatre Royal until 3:30pm on December 4th, after which they will be available at St Johns Church on the evening of the performance
