A memorable evening of glorious choral music in the majestic setting of Worcester Cathedral, this is the region's ultimate Christmas concert.
For 275 years, George Frideric Handel’s compelling and richly varied Messiah has held a unique place in the affections of music lovers across the English speaking world. Its greatest choruses – such as the instantly recognisable Hallelujah chorus and many others – are among the most popular pieces of music ever written. So rousing is the work that, during the London premiere of Messiah in 1743, King George II rose to his feet at the start of the Hallelujah chorus and remained standing until the end; a tradition that is followed around the world today.
Supporting Worcester Festival Choral Society – a Three Choirs Festival choir – are the Meridian Sinfonia and acclaimed soloists. The conductor is Peter Nardone.
