The Weekend Sun Competition

Despair and hope, pestilence and disease, release and escape in the face of impossible odds.


No, this is not the plot for ‘COVID-19: The Musical’.


It is a much more ancient drama - the story for one of the greatest choral masterpieces ever written: George Frederic Handel’s ‘Israel in Egypt’ which became one of the two most popular Handel oratorios - the other, of course, was ‘Messiah’.


Join the Scholars Baroque Aotearoa chamber choir and Opus Orchestra in an exquisite musical feast celebrating deliverance on Saturday, October 10. Be at St Mary Immaculate Church in Tauranga in good time to enjoy the pre-concert Chat at 7pm.


Tickets: $35 adult, $30 senior, $5 child/student (ID).


Adult tickets cost $35, seniors $30 and child or student (with ID) tickets cost $5.


For more information, search ‘Scholars Baroque’ on Ticketek.



The Weekend Sun has one double pass to ‘Israel in Egypt’ on October 10 for one lucky winner
