Welcome to the web site of Invitatione.


Invitatione is a group of singers and musicians active in the East Riding of Yorkshire and Kingston upon Hull.  Under the direction of Rachel Mathieson we give performances from small chamber works to full scale symphonies.


Plans are being made to perform Handel’s Messiah on April 14th at All Saints, Great Driffield and on April 21st at Hull Minster. This has been scheduled to reflect the first performance in Dublin on April 13th of 1742.
