MADRIGALS AND MORE is performed by Voices from the City of Birmingham Choir and instrumentalists Jessica Gabbott (flute) and Kristina Kennedy (harp).

In Symphony Hall...

In Symphony Hall…

Saturday 17th sees our fantastic musical feast – English Reflections – in Symphony Hall at 7.30 pm.

Along with the popular Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra, we present three works by composers writing in the early twentieth century, a period so much in focus as we commemorate the First World War.

In the concert is the tremendously powerful Hymn of Jesus by Gustav Holst, as well as Vaughan Williams’ evocative call for peace, Dona Nobis Pacem. The orchestra will perform Elgar’s King Arthur Suite. Book your tickets online, in person at the Symphony Hall or Town Hall box offices, or call 0121 345 0603. We look forward to seeing you.
