Handel: Messiah, Symphony Hall

Friday, 9th December 2011 at 7:00pm; Symphony Hall, Birmingham.

Messiah has been one of the highlights of our musical calendar for Birmingham audiences since our first performance in 1921. We hope that you will join us, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and a quartet of talented soloists, for one of our critically acclaimed performances this festive season.

It is often said by regulars to our Messiah concert that Christmas does not start for them until they hear the Hallelujah Chorus. So escape the hustle and bustle of your Christmas preparations by joining us for a wonderful evening of music and kick start your festive celebrations.

This year we are trialling a new initiative to give audiences free programmes for our Messiah concerts. A short, free programme with the words and other basic information will be given out at the concert itself. A more detailed programme is available here to read at your leisure, before or after the concert.
