A spectacular Messiah with Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus and Black Dyke Band

For many people, Easter isn't complete without hearing Handel's wonderful oratorio Messiah, regularly performed at Christmas but more pertinently celebrating the Easter message of redemption, hope and joy. Messiah is probably Handel's best-known and most-loved work for its beautiful solos and duets, rousing choruses and dramatic instrumental writing. A performance in the brass band format is very different and well worth coming along to hear.

Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus present this spectacular Easter Messiah in the Victoria Hall, Sheffield, accompanied by the world-famous Black Dyke Band. The Chorus last performed Messiah with a baroque orchestra in April 2017, and is pleased to be presenting the brass band version this Easter. Making it even more special, the Chorus will be joined by choristers from Sheffield's twin town Bochum in Germany, and from Perigeux in France, following successful singing trips to both European cities over the last two years.

So do come along and hear this magnificent work as you’ve never heard it before!
