We have a period of intensive rehearsals through the first few months of 2017, then in April comes our Tour to Vienna, including a cathedral performance of Handel’s Messiah.

On 20th May in Symphony Hall, we will have a really exciting collaboration with Birmingham Schools’ Symphony Orchestra under conductor Michael Seal, culminating in Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast. Finally, on 17th June, we have another away day to the glorious Tewkesbury Abbey for a tremendous concert of English music.
