Brass band version of this popular classic

The Chorus is thrilled to be able to present the brass band version of Handel's wonderful oratorio Messiah, with the world-famous Black Dyke Band, and visiting choirs from Bochum in Germany and Perigueux in France. The Chorus have undertaken tours in both Bochum and Perigueux in recent years, and has strong associations with the choirs in the two cities. This brass band Messiah collaboration was planned for 2019 but had to be postponed due to the pandemic. However, all three choirs were determined to go ahead, and the big event is planned for St George's Day 2022. Featuring new aria arrangements for brass by Chorus Music Director Darius Battiwalla, and four wonderful soloists, this will be an evening to remember!

Tickets will be available from January 2022
