Magnificent Mass in Blue and Fab Freedom!

17th November 2019, by Mark Lawrence

Call Me Al quintet with Alexander and Joanna Forbes L’Estrange, backstage at the Mass in Blue concert

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.
