There can be no better place to celebrate Aberdeen's greatest thinkers, scientists, explorers, inventors, writers and gardeners (yes, we do mean gardeners).

The Aberdeen Bach Choir will give their first ever performance of George Frideric Handel’s Israel in Egypt accompanied by the Aberdeen Sinfonietta. This oratorio, which draws directly on passages from the Old Testament, is now a favourite worldwide, not least because of the intense and almost operatic drama Handel brings to the music, both for the double chorus and for the soloists. The original version of the work was in three parts: the first part was written for the funeral of Queen Caroline and is rarely performed today.
