The Northampton Bach Choir's 2023/24 season finishes at Christ Church with an evening of favourite opera arias and choruses, including the Habanera and Flower Song from Bizet's Carmen, the Easter Hymn from Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana, Puccini's Nessun Dorma, Verdi's Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves and Triumphal March from Aida, and much more besides.

We're thrilled to be joined by soprano Philippa Boyle, tenor Dominic Neville and pianists Marc Verter and Jem Lowther for what will be a lively, invigorating, thrilling and joyful evening of great melodies and passionate singing.
