Passionate about great choral music
Welcome to our wonderful choral concerts in Symphony Hall and Elgar Concert Hall, Birmingham. Founded in 1921, we are looking forward to our centenary in 2021.
See our full programme on our CONCERTS page.
stunningly accomplished performance by Adrian Lucas and the City of Birmingham Choir (performance of James MacMillan’s Seven Last Words From the Cross)
An exuberant and exhilarating concert today with Alexander and Joanna Forbes L’Estrange and their band, ‘Call me Al’, saw the City of Birmingham Choir under Adrian Lucas perform Will Todd’s Mass in Blue and the L’Estranges’ Freedom: the Power of Song. Tremendous instrumental playing and soprano vocals added to the children’s choir and the City Choir. A great afternoon hugely enjoyed by the audience.
Now we want to remind you of HANDEL’S MESSIAH, also featuring our orchestral friends, the CBSO. Be there for your baroque treat on Friday 6th December.
A CHRISTMAS CRACKER is our Christmas concert with guest presenter ALED JONES on Saturday afternoon, 21st December. Our final Symphony Hall concert of 2019 will be BEETHOVEN’S NINTH, in conjunction with our friends in Birmingham Choral Union.
