Passionate about great choral music
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 next concerts
Our next concert, on Sunday 5th November, will include Mozart’s Requiem.
Handel’s Messiah with the CBSO – Friday 8th December at 7 pm
A fabulous opportunity to enjoy a sparkling performance of Handel’s famous choral masterpiece, Messiah, in the acoustically perfect surroundings of Birmingham’s Symphony Hall. Performed by the City of Birmingham Choir together with the world-renowned CBSO, for many this is the traditional way to start the Christmas celebrations.
We can provide a choir for weddings, parties or other occasions. Voices from the City of Birmingham Choir have been enthusiastically received at a wide range of events. A choir of between 10 and 30 singers can perform serious or more light-hearted songs to suit the mood. Read MORE.
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.
such a wonderful homogeneity of tone from all four vocal sections, and the lightness of touch
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.
