For music-lovers in the Midlands, Christmas starts with the incomparable performance of Handel’s iconic ‘Messiah’ by the City of Birmingham Choir. This much-loved re-telling of the Christmas story speaks to the heart for all ages. A Birmingham tradition which inspires and delights.
A second chance to hear Birmingham’s favourite traditional Messiah, this time in the historic surroundings of the Town Hall.
Compress the Old Testament prophesies of the life of Jesus Christ into two and a half hours and set it to timeless and sublime music – that’s Messiah in a nutshell.
