Singing in Symphony Hall

Great Choral Music

We are delighted to bring you wonderful choral concerts in Birmingham’s magnificent Symphony Hall, the Elgar Concert Hall and at Tewkesbury Abbey.

Our new recording of Mahler’s 2nd Symphony transcribed for organ by David Briggs was described as ‘riveting’ on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review.

Our next concerts

Our next concert, on Sunday 5th November, will include Mozart’s Requiem.

Outside Stephansdom, Vienna, April 2017

We finished our season in June with another away day to the glorious Tewkesbury Abbey for an evening of choral contrasts. In April we enjoyed a marvellous Tour to Vienna, including a cathedral performance of Handel’s Messiah. Symphony Hall in May saw our exciting collaboration with Birmingham Schools’ Symphony Orchestra under conductor Michael Seal, which lived up to expectations in Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast.

Our inspirational music director is Adrian Lucas.

We were truly privileged to hear this fine performance by the inspired City of Birmingham Choir

Well into the swing of things…

16th September 2017, by Mark Lawrence

We have enjoyed our first rehearsals of the autumn “getting our teeth into” Mozart’s Requiem, that great and moving work which Mozart only partly completed on his deathbed. His discussions with his pupil, Süssmayr, allowed the latter to complete the work – most probably with a good deal of the intended elements.

Do book tickets for this and our other forthcoming Symphony Hall Concerts. We look forward to seeing you in the audience.
