Enjoy our highly acclaimed performances with the CBSO and a quartet of talented soloists.
A highlight of our musical calendar, the Choir’s performances of Messiah continue to attract critical acclaim. If you have yet to experience one why not get the festive season off to a fantastic musical start in 2010? If you have heard us before then you will know what a special occasion this is. We look forward to welcoming Messiah goers old and new!
Our soloists are:
Claire Wild: Soprano

The City of Birmingham Choir first sang Messiah in 1921 and has performed it in Birmingham every year since 1943.
