St Matthew Passion

In February 2016 the Lea Singers, a small chamber choir based in Harpenden, undertook their most ambitious project to date, a semi-staged performance of Bach’s St Matthew Passion, with musical director Benjamin Goodson and stage director Thomas Guthrie in the stunning surroundings of St Albans Abbey. James Gilchrist sang the role of Evangelist and a top-class period orchestra was led by Kati Debretzeni.

For this project Lucy was asked to help with project planning, soloist and orchestral fixing, management and fundraising (£10,000 target) which included grant applications, approaches to corporate sponsors and a crowdfunding appeal.
