Cadenza at the Fringe 2019

Cadenza is delighted to be performing in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe again this year – we’ve been a consistent feature at the world’s largest arts festival for over two decades. Following five sell-out concerts, Cadenza is delighted to be returning to the stunning surroundings of Greyfriars Kirk for another exciting programme of choral music, performing Puccini’s magnificent Messa di Gloria alongside Haydn’s Te Deum and Insanae et Vanae Curae and a Scottish première performance of Janet Wheeler’s Alleluia. Tickets – priced £15, £13 (concessions) and £4 (children) are available now from choir members or via the Fringe Box Office.

The Messa di Gloria was an early work, first performed in 1880, when Puccini was only 22. It was not heard again during his lifetime and only eventually performed in 1952. Unashamedly operatic and full of good tunes, this is a work not to be missed!

Acclaimed soloists Ross McLean, Tenor, and Andrew McTaggart, Baritone, will be joining us for this performance, as will the Cadenza Fringe Orchestra.

Contrasting with the Puccini is Haydn’s Te Deum, a late work full of jubilation, followed by his Insanae et Vanae Curae.

Continuing the jubilant mood, Cadenza is delighted to be premièring Janet Wheeler’s Alleluia.

Come and join us for a very special evening of choral music with choir, soloists and orchestra. More information is available on our Concerts page.
