We are delighted that all our autumn 2019 concert tickets are now on sale. Our own wonderful concerts include the renowned, uplifting, jazzy Mass in Blue by Will Todd, paired with the new cantata Freedom! by Alexander and Joanna Forbes L’Estrange. Then we welcome you to Handel’s Messiah with the CBSO – which we are the experts at performing. We have a track record of nearly 100 years of performances of this masterpiece, yet always keeping our concert fresh and vivacious.
